NJMVC to Begin Rollout of New Temporary Registration Tags

The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) today announced it will begin rolling out new temporary registration tags. Temporary registration tags are also commonly referred to as temporary registration certificates, temporary license plates, or “temp tags.”

The new temporary registration tags will have a new format and will print on a new form of paper with enhanced security features that will help prevent and reduce fraud, in accordance with P.L.2023, c.285, which was passed in January 2024. The law authorizes new temporary registration tag security measures and procedures.

This initiative will begin as a phased rollout that will be expanded throughout the course of the summer. As the rollout proceeds, the use of the new format and enhanced paper will be phased in gradually, resulting in an initial period where vehicles with the old paper and format will be seen on the roads alongside vehicles with the new format and enhanced paper.

Motor vehicle dealers will be given time to transition to the new tags and procedures to account for required logistical changes and the 30-day issuance period for temporary registration tags. The NJMVC anticipates the phaseout of the old paper and format completely by the early fall.

Appropriate details about the new security features and new procedures for the issuance of temporary registration tags will be relayed to law enforcement and dealers in separate communications in the near future.

Among its other provisions, the law establishes penalties and increases fines for dealers and individuals who knowingly issue, possess, or display fraudulent temporary registration tags. The law also mandates the establishment of a vehicle registry for dealers to share additional information with the NJMVC, with a planned launch in 2025.
