Reminder: Ridgewood VIS to Close Permanently

TRENTON - The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) reminds New Jersey motorists that it will permanently close its Ridgewood Motor Vehicle Inspection Station on Wednesday, January 31, 2007.  The MVC announced this closure in December 2006.

This facility is an appointment-only, two-lane inspection station. Technicians there complete about 27,000 vehicle inspections annually. The MVC has operated at the Ridgewood facility since 1938.

Motorists who normally use the Ridgewood facility for vehicle inspection should visit the MVC’s Lodi (9 miles away) or Paramus (6 miles away) Inspection Stations starting in February 2007.

For maps and driving directions, hours and service information, please visit the MVC online at www.njmvc.gov.

Avoid the end- and beginning-of-the-month rush at the MVC inspection stations and agencies by visiting mid-week and mid-month
