MEDFORD – Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield and Assemblyman Ryan Peters are once again bringing a Motor Vehicle Commission Mobile Unit to their 8th District residents.
“There’s still so many more people who need help with their motor vehicle needs. One MVC Mobile Unit day wasn’t enough. We’re trying to help as many people as we can and won’t stop until that mission is accomplished,” Stanfield said.
Stanfield and Peters held the same event in July, helping more than 50 people obtain licenses, registration, handicapped placards and more.
The pandemic, in addition to the state’s quick trigger to close motor vehicle agencies, has caused a backlog in appointments and countless cancellations. Agencies that stayed open were also only able to perform specific transactions. This left many residents with appointments three months out, long wait times or having to travel far to complete transactions.
“This event was great and provided a much needed service to our community. It allowed residents like me an easier way to address their MVC needs in an open and safe atmosphere,” said Nicky Huryn, a Southampton resident who attended the Mobile MVC event in July.
On Monday, August 30th, the Mobile MVC Unit will be setting up shop at Shoprite of Medford on Route 70. The unit will be parked from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Residents must make an appointment to be helped.
"The ShopRite of Medford is very community oriented, so we were happy to be part of this new effort with the Motor Vehicles Commission and assembly members. It's another way for ShopRite to be a one-stop shopping venue," said Linda Snuffin, the Events and Community Support of ShopRite of Medford.
To sign up, please call 609-667-7360 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and let them know you would like to sign up for the Mobile MVC Unit. You’ll be asked for your first and last name, email address and what your transaction will be. The unit can do driver’s license renewals, registration renewals, license plate drop offs, handicapped placards, non-driver ID, motorcycle license renewal and CDL renewal. Unfortunately, all REAL ID spots have been booked.
“Our ‘District Day of Service’ events are not slowing down. Assemblywoman Stanfield and I will continue to go directly to the community to help our residents,” Peters said. ”Last month, the Mobile MVC team was efficient and the agents were helping everyone they could. Bringing them back again this month was a no brainer.”
