ELIZABETH, NJ (WCBS 880) — Wait times at New Jersey motor vehicle offices have soared and drivers are fed up. But now there’s a plan to cut down on those wait times.

Waiting 15 minutes or less at Motor Vehicle Commission sites is the goal of a bill introduced by Union County Assemblyman Joe Cryan.

“What the bill requires is that the administrator of the Motor Vehicle Commission develops standards to achieve a wait-time of 15 minutes or less in every agency,” said Cryan.

Right now, customers are waiting three hours or more in many locations throughout the state. Last year, 17 locations were closed and that’s led to the backlog at other offices. 

Cryan says the head of the agency is on board.
