Lodi NJ, Senator Anthony M. Bucco and Senator Kristin Corrado said computer network outages at New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission agencies this morning have only added to the suffering of drivers who continue to wait on hours-long lines for basic services.

“My phones lit up again this morning with calls from frustrated constituents demanding an explanation for this latest mishap at the MVC,” said Bucco (R-25). “On the most basic level, the good people of New Jersey deserve adequate and functional government, not the preventable chaos that’s happened daily at MVC agencies since they reopened in July. Today’s computer outages are another sign that the MVC isn’t doing enough to improve service.”

“The unfortunate dysfunction of the MVC stretches across many facets of their work,” said Corrado (R-40). “New Jerseyans who simply want to ensure their licenses are updated and legally following the rules of the road are facing roadblock after roadblock. Between long lines, ridiculous wait times, and mass network outages, what can the MVC get right?”

  1. I went on line to renew my registration last week and it did not work . Just a joke. They need more offices . They need to be open 24 hrs 7 days s week it’s the only way to catch up. This place has been like this for years. They blame it on covid19 , please stop the b s . The place is dirty, smelly , people stink ,totally out of control. It’s another world in side these sites. You will see another long term extension. What else can they do. This state needs help from the u s government .

  2. Privatize the process and allow normal competitive factors work.

  3. I always vote for the Democratic governor…… but now I suspect that if Gov. Murphy allows this to happen without interceding to get it fixed…. other NJ departments are likely to be also grossly mismanaged!!!!!
    Phil….. fix this!

  4. They’ve put extensions on most everything, and they gave warning early in the day that the system was down, when I saw the system was down you know what I didn’t do…. go stand in line for a system that was down…

    Just mail it in like always.
    Mail in still supported (even if it is not publicized) and turn around is reasonable.

  6. Yes I always use the mail. Guess what I never received my renewal registration. So I went online to process it. Not working. Their system is way too old. Understaffed. And they need more locations throughout the state. This is ridiculous it’s embarrassing no one wants to go to motor vehicle. It’s like immigration all over again. I’m sorry but some people really do stink they don’t take a shower before they go. They’re filthy. The place is filthy. You don’t want to touch anything you don’t even want to breathe in the air disgusting. Something needs to be done immediately, they need to start training more individuals. It’s not like it’s not warranted. They can open up seven days a week they’ll find people that would work. What’s going to happen when the weather gets cold or it’s raining people going to stand outside come on not right.

  7. “I always vote for the Democratic governor” , you reap what you sow

  8. Motor vehicle agency in New Jersey is the biggest embarrassment of all. This nonsense has been going on for over 40 years. I’ve been hearing seeing this on organized division my whole life. It really is a joke . It’s so mismanaged that the whole division needs to be revamped. Who do we blame I don’t know. But it’s a mess is it funding, and maybe. It’s just like the inspection division that’s another joke. And you wonder why people are bailing out of New Jersey. I love the state always took pride in it. But the state doesn’t take pride in long-term individuals who stay here and try to work out a family do the right thing make the state better. Now you’re better off just using all the services and when you get older move out .

  9. Can you say shit hole! Of a place .

  10. My biggest frustration is the siloed services at only limited offices right now. I bought a car in August and needed to get perm registration and plates. Always went to Oakland office to do this in the past.
    When I arrived I noticed no line. To good to be true, right? Correct. The service rep told me that only 3 facilities in the state were now handling such services, the closest one in Wallington.
    When I arrived in Wallington, it looked like a prison outbreak. There were sheriff cars everywhere, and people all over the parking lot.
    I found out that the facility that the line was full at 230 am!?
    The sheriff’s aid stated there was a grace period until 12/31 to complete, which may take that long to fulfill.
    I understand that the facilities may be dealing with limited staff due to COVID 19 issues, but only 3 facilities in the state handling registration and plates to a population of 8-9 million? Can’t they find a better method than that?

  11. I used mail on 3 vehicles this year.
    No problems at all.
