Instead of waiting in line at the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC), Secaucus is bringing the MVC to residents.
On Aug. 4, the town will host a NJMVC mobile unit at the Recreation Center parking lot at 1200 Koelle Blvd., 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Services include registration renewals, handicap placards and permits, real ID, nondriver ID, and license plate drop off with no registration required.
Services are by appointment only, which aims to prevent long lines. Register at SecaucusNJ.gov/DMV.
There will be 90 appointments. Of those, 14 will be real ID appointments. Those seeking renewals must be within six months of expiration.
The program is courtesy of the Secaucus Police Department in conjunction with Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the Town Council.
Guttenberg recently brought an MVC mobile unit to town so that individuals could conveniently conduct business rather than having to travel and potentially wait in long lines.
The mobile unit set up shop in the parking lot of Town Hall on July 26.
There are three MVCs in the county, licensing centers in North Bergen and Bayonne, and a vehicle center in Jersey City.
During the pandemic MVCs have have been plagued with extra long lines, short staff, and constant closures due to employee exposure to COVID-19.
