I am trying to renew my NJ Drivers License but have problems regarding proof of address. I am a Catholic Priest who belongs to a Religious Order, ( the Franciscans) and I do not have a credit card or have a bank account and my housing is provided by my religious community. I pay no bills so I do not have these for verification of my address- I meet the 6 point ID verification with my current NJ License (4points) and my DD 214 military discharge papers (2points) The problem is proving where I live - I am unable to renew my license by mail as the renewal form says I need to renew at the DMV. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated
The current New Jersey MVC website lists the following options for proof of address:
Utility or credit card bill issued in the past 90 days that shows your name at your current address
Checking or savings account statement from a bank or credit union, issued in the past 60 days
High school or college report card or transcript containing your address, issued within the past two years
Original lease or rental agreement showing your name as the lessee or renter
Property tax bill, statement or receipt from the past year
Any letter or correspondence (including tax bills) received from the IRS or state tax office in the last year
First-class mail received from any federal, state or local government agency in the past six months
As you describe your situation, the first five don't apply, but if your driver's license renewal notice was sent by mail, that counts as "first-class mail received from any federal, state or local government agency in the past six months".
The website also notes that this list is not comprehensive, and other methods of proving your address are possible. If all else fails, you can contact them for suggestions.
