Corrado: Closing MVC Center is Slight to Drivers Waiting in Long Lines

The logjam of frustrated drivers continues at Motor Vehicle Commission facilities across the state, and now things will only get worse in Passaic Country, where the licensing center in Wayne is being closed for more than a week after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

Drivers across the state have been frustrated by long, slow lines at Motor Vehicles Commission locations, and Senator Corrado said that will only get worse with the temporary closure of the Wayne facility after an employee tested positive for COVID-19. (

“This response is an over-reaction by MVC and yet another example of the Murphy Administration being out of touch with the real world,” said Senator Kristin Corrado. “There is no justification for locking the doors for more than a week. It’s a panic move that proves MVC has little to no regard for its own customers.

“Businesses across the state that rely on customers for their survival are able to safely reopen, often in a day or two, after closing temporarily for a complete sanitization. Only a state department can afford to come to a full stop. No other enterprise has that luxury,” Corrado continued.

“With so many important transactions that drivers are waiting to complete backlogged, closing the Wayne MVC for eight days is unreasonable. If the MVC was a business, they would be out of business.”
