MEDIA ADVISORY

Christie Administration Encourages Customers to Use Official MVC Websites for Online Transactions

Customers Can Unknowingly be Misdirected

(TRENTON) – To protect customers from potential hassles, the Christie Administration today issued a reminder to its customers to conduct any transactions only on the official Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) website, www.njmvc.gov, as well as two sister sites www.njinspections.com and www.njridesafe.org.
 
The MVC site is available to customers 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week and offers a range of online services including vehicle registration renewal, road test and vehicle inspection scheduling, personalized and specialty plate ordering, driver abstract requests and motor vehicle surcharge and restoration payments. Customers may also easily update their address when they move, as well as register as an organ donor through the site.

The MVC official website contains certain images and logos that cannot be used on other sites, such as the seal of the State of New Jersey, MyMVC branding and the MVC "swoosh" logo. Since 2010, almost 9 million transactions have been conducted on the MVC website.

At the present time, driver's licenses are NOT renewable online – even for a fee. Registration renewals are a current online service and so are driver abstracts. Non-certified and certified abstracts for employment, or for events such as taking the Bar Examination, require a pre-distributed online ID that is sent through the mail. Once the online ID is received in the mail, the driver can then request his or her abstract.

When searching for the official MVC website on search engines, customers are encouraged to check their browser to ensure they have landed on the official MVC website managed by the State of New Jersey. The official MVC website has a small, white outline of New Jersey in the browser tab.
