    It’s seriously hard to believe people are still sitting outside hours before the DMV opens. If you don’t get there at 2AM, you’re probably not getting in. I’m truly disgusted at the way NJ is handling this making people sit outside all night with no guarentee of getting anything resolved. Make online appointments available or let people submit requests online. It’s that simple. The system is outdated and we need reform!
