TRENTON, N.J. (CBSnewYork) - Starting this month, New Jersey drivers born before December 1, 1964 who need to renew their licenses won’t need to go down to the MVC.

“In November and then December and January, they’re going to be getting an invitation, starting this month, to skip the trip to motor vehicles and do their license renewal by mail,” New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission chief Raymond Martinez said.

Martinesz said that in November alone that should be about 50,000 people.

“The more people to take advantage of it, it’s better for them, but it’s also better for everybody in our offices that do have to go because then it’s less people in the offices,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Levon Putney.

Those who renew by mail should get their new licenses in 7 to 10 business days.

He said those who qualify but still want to renew their licenses at a motor vehicle agency can still do it.
