Hudson County Birth CertificatesIf you were born in or after 1965, you can still use your certified Jersey City/Hudson county birth certificate to renew your license.
If you were born before 1965, you have two options:
- Get a new, certified copy of your birth record from the State Bureau of Vital Statistics and Registration. There is a $25 fee. This copy will be valid for all identification purposes
- Get a letter of authenticity from the State Bureau of Vital Statistics. This letter is only valid with the MVC and will not serve as a certified copy of your birth certificate. There is no fee with this option
To obtain a copy of your birth certificate that the MVC will accept, please visit the State Bureau of Vital Statistics and Registration.
