New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Verification Requirements

In order to obtain licenses and permits at MVC, you are required to pass the 6 Point ID Verification.

This procedure was designed to help prevent identity theft by ensuring that all licenses are distributed accurately with proper legal documents and verification.

You must prove that your presence in the country is authorized under federal law.

Your application will only be accepted when the proper documents are presented. Any false or invalid documents will also be refused.

If your name does not match that on your birth certificate, you must provide alternative documentation for the name change (i.e. marriage certificate).

This requires you to prepare information prior to visiting an Motor Vehicle Agency, possibly resulting in special document requests from other state agencies.
