Planning On Getting Your License Today?

In case you had plans to go for your license today, you’ll have to take a rain check. New Jerseyans can’t get driver’s licenses today, but can get their motor vehicles inspected. Motor Vehicle Commission offices across the state are closed as 2,406 employees take a state-mandated furlough. Vehicle inspection centers are not affected by the furloughs because they are privately operated. The unpaid day off is designed to help cut costs and balance the state budget in the recession. MVC employees are planning to protest outside offices in Newark. Their union said the furloughs don’t save money because the Motor Vehicles Commission is self-funded through fees.
