New Jersey Mother Gets Help from Gov. Chris Christie to Replace Son's Damaged Learner's Permit

A frustrated New Jersey mother is getting some muscle in her quest to replace her son's damaged driver's permit.

Gov. Chris Christie will accompany the woman to the Motor Vehicle Commission office in South Plainfield Thursday.

The woman called radio station New Jersey 101.5's "Ask the Governor" program on Wednesday and told Christie she has no luck replacing the permit that got damaged in the wash when her son left it in his jeans. She told the governor she went to five MVC locations and couldn't get a replacement.

Christie initially joked he should have the MVC commissioner deliver the permit. But then the governor decided to go. The governor told the woman "we may actually get some action here."
