NJ drivers affected by shutdown get extension on documents

- Drivers in New Jersey who could not renew some documents due to the state government shutdown are getting a brief reprieve.

The state Motor Vehicle Commission announced it's granting a two-day extension to people whose driver's license, permits, registrations or inspection stickers had expired last Friday, at the end of June.

An MVC spokesman says these documents will now be valid through until Thursday.

MVC offices have been shuttered since Saturday, when the shutdown took effect. But they are due to reopen Wednesday after lawmakers and Republican Gov. Chris Christie reached an agreement on the state budget.
