The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) recently announced that New Jersey motorists can now utilize an electronic proof of vehicle registration that can be displayed on a smartphone, tablet or computer. While paper registrations will still be issued and recognized as valid, they are no longer the only option for drivers when they need to provide proof of registration.
Effective March 24, 2023, when customers submit a registration renewal or duplicate registration transaction through the eMVC website, they will receive a PDF of their digital registration document via email, as well as a paper registration in the mail. There is a link to a sample digital registration at the end of this story. Registrations processed by a branch NJMVC Agency, the DSP, or through the DOSP (Dealer Track or CVR) will continue to be issued in paper format only.
Either the traditional paper version of a New Jersey registration or the digital version can be displayed or provided to law enforcement, the courts, or any other entity that requires the presentation of a valid New Jersey vehicle registration, including dealerships.
NOTE: Dealerships must continue to provide customers with printed registration documents.
