New Jersey to Join State-to-State Verification Service for Licenses, IDs; During System Upgrade, NJMVC Agencies to Close

Starting Monday, March 25, New Jersey will join the State-to-State (S2S) Verification Service to further strengthen the security of driver licenses and IDs issued in the Garden State. By joining the program, New Jersey will finalize its compliance with the federal REAL ID Act.  

“Ensuring one driver has one license is the goal of the State-to-State service,” said Latrecia Littles-Floyd, Acting Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC). “With New Jersey signing on to the program, the Motor Vehicle Commission will enhance the integrity of the licensing process here and in other states, leading to safer roads and better identity theft protections that benefit everyone.” 

For additional information about S2S, including answers to frequently asked questions, please visit the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) website. New Jersey will be the 40th state to join the S2S service.

  1. Imagine doing the same thing with voter registration?
    I moved a few times between blue states and I wound up with multiple registrations in each state. Just from DMV registering me to vote when I transferred my driver’s license. They never notified my old (blue) state to cancel my old registration.

  2. I moved to a new location and I still have my old driver’s license in my possession but it needs to be renewed by August 17, 2024 can I make an appointment to come in for an update license
