Older New Jersey drivers will soon be allowed to renew their licenses through the mail, removing the inconvenience of having to show up in person at least until 2017, when new federal identification requirements kick in.
According to the Newark Star-Ledger, older drivers born on or before Dec. 1, 1964, will start getting notices this month that they can skip the trip to their local motor vehicle center and renew by mail.
But the state's nearly 3 million drivers born after that date will still have to show up in person to have their licenses renewed under strict federal requirements aimed at preventing document fraud  and other illegal efforts to obtain licenses.
Under the tougher rules, younger drivers will be required to show Social Security documents as proof of identification. Other forms of primary identification, such as a recently expired passport, would not be accepted, the Star-Leger reported.
The new ID requirements will also be applied to older drivers as well, but not before 2017. Until then, New Jersey baby boomers can renew by mail.
