No, in NJ they either let you continue the previous inspection if the car is used,
OR if the car is new the dealer gives you a 5 year sticker
OR you get that pink rectangular card which gives you several weeks to inspect.

Is NJ Like this? Could I use one persay in like a different county?

You can go to any DMV in NJ, it doesn't have to be in your county. As I said, look at the list I posted, I'll put it below. You need to go to 2 different places.

For your car stuff, you'll have to look on this list to see what town is closest. I guess it would be South Brunswick if Edison is closest to you.

I've never been to Vineland even though it's not far from me. I thought you were in North Jersey? Vineland can be a long haul, even from where I live depending on where it is. Vineland has been one of those towns where both my GPS and Google maps have both given me bad directions lol

I wonder if ocnjgirl has been there.

They're never right on mine either. If I go to Home Depot site for instance, it will say "Your store (town 60 miles away) and I have to change the zip code.

6. Bank Statement with address
7. Credit Card Statement with address
8. 1040, 1099, and 1090 from 2020. A W2 too from where I worked.
9. 3 paystubs

Yes, the old DMV was really bad. Luckily, the MVC is much improved over the DMV.

However, I can't explain the difficulty that you experienced. I presented only a fraction of the documentation that you gave them, and I had no problem getting my new license a few years ago.
Did you ask them what type of documentation you lacked?
