MVC no longer issues GDL Permits

in their Manahawkin agency.

We must now drive to Tom's River to purchase your

16 year old's permit.  We have to drop it off to MVC for issue.

They will phone us when it is ready, we will drive up and get it.

After the 6 hours is completed, we have to drive to

MVC Tom's River to validate the permit. 

We have to drop it off.

They will phone us when it is ready, we will drive up and get it.

In order to stay in business, we unfortunately cannot absorb this added expense. 

We must now charge an extra $20 for the purchase and validation of the GDL permit.

Thank you for your understanding and

your continued trust in us and in our driving school.
