If you are a municipality or county, you already are registered in SAGE through the Department of Community Affairs. However, if you have never personally used the SAGE system, you will need to register through the authorized official in your municipality or county. This individual is usually someone in the Mayor’s or Freeholder’s office. You may also contact the Division for this information.

If you are a non-profit, state government department (such as Transportation, OIT, Health and Senior Services, etc.) or a College, University or other entity not registered through the Department of Community Affairs, you will need to register through the Division of Highway Traffic Safety. This may be done through the SAGE login website.
