“JERSEY CITY VEHICLE CENTER is closed due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19, and will reopen on Tuesday, October 6,” the New Jersey MVC tweeted this morning.

The Jersey City location was the only Hudson County DMV that designated hours on Tuesday and Thursdays for people over 65 years old to process new and used car registrations, according to their MVC website.

This was part of an executive order issued by Gov. Phil Murphy (D) on Friday, which also extended the deadline for commercial driver’s licenses from March 1st to December 31st.

Additionally, basic driver’s licenses can be renewed online at, a change made after DMVs around the state had lines blocks long after reopening on July 7th, with some patrons even camping in line overnight.

As of 10, the Bayonne and North Bergen locations are still open for business.
