TRENTON – New Jersey residents who are active duty military personnel serving in the war on terrorism, including the National Guard and Military Reserves, will continue to receive automatic extensions of valid driver license, registration and inspection expiration dates, Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Raymond P. Martinez announced Monday.
“This order is a simple, but helpful gesture to demonstrate the state’s support for the troops and recognize the tremendous sacrifice that they are making on behalf of all New Jerseysans,” said Martinez. “Easing this burden at home for our soldiers and their families is one way to thank them for their dedication and service.”
Authorized each year, the extensions are granted to military personnel during active service in the war on terrorism (including Operations Noble Eagle and Enduring Freedom) or Operation Iraqi Freedom. License, registration and inspection documents will remain valid until two weeks after demobilization.
The law enforcement community is aware of the extension however, military personnel should carry a copy of the letter signed by, which can be found on www.njmvc.gov, along with their active duty military credentials when operating a motor vehicle.
