ESSEX COUNTY, NJ — Vehicle owners who haven’t been able to make their way to a state inspection station may find more success at an upcoming event in Cedar Grove.
The Cedar Grove Police Department will be teaming up with the New Jersey State Motor Vehicles Commission (NJMVC) to host a pop-up vehicle inspection station on Friday, Aug. 28.
According to a news release from police, inspections will take place from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot next to the Cedar Grove Board of Education Offices at 520 Pompton Avenue.
“Motorists will be required to present a valid license, registration and insurance card prior to inspection. Police officers will be on scene to assists motorists in and out of the inspection location. The unit will conduct vehicle inspections free of charge. Motorists requiring other services such as license or registration renewal will need to go to a NJMVC location.”
Car owners across New Jersey, including Essex County, have been reporting severely long lines as the state’s inspection facilities reopen from the coronavirus shutdown.
