    TRENTON (WCBS 880) — Gov. Phil Murphy has announced new deadline extensions for expiring licenses in the coming months.

    With the massive crowds lining up outside Motor Vehicle Commission offices, Murphy is hoping to ease the pressure on workers by extending deadlines for document expirations.

    MVC documents that expired between March 13 and May 31 have been extended to September 30. Those expiring between June 1 and August 31 have been extended to December 31, Gov. Murphy said.

    The governor says the MVC has been issuing a record number of licenses and registrations to meet this week’s overwhelming demand since doors officially reopened. 

    In his briefing Friday, Murphy addressed the crowds who even camped overnight.

    "But MVC is not gonna get to everybody in line every day, so please, if you're told the agency has reached capacity, don't hang around, don't camp overnight please,” Murphy said.

    Some MVC offices reached capacity even before opening for the day on Friday.

    The governor previously announced MVC workers are exempt from work furloughs and the offices will be open six day per week beginning Monday.
