Governor Murphy has exempted MVC employees from furlough starting Monday, July 13, enabling MVC
to add staff at agencies. Expiration dates were also extended further (see link below).

MVC has implemented the following operations changes, effective July 9.
1. Each morning, we will establish the total number of customers that each agency can serve that day,
based on that agency’s size, staffing, and previous day’s performance. Tickets will be given out up to
that number, then remaining customers will be required to disperse. As soon as capacity is met, we
will publish on our website and social media.
2. People will not be allowed to queue up on MVC property after capacity is reached until the next
morning at 7:00 AM.
3. New drivers will be given preference at Licensing Centers. When staff go out to distribute tickets,
the first tickets will be given to those who have completed requirements for a new permit or license.
Already-licensed drivers (who will be able to drive under the extension) will be served after all new
drivers have been served.
