NCDMV Office Changes

NCDOT is doing its part to protect public health during the coronavirus outbreak and we’re asking all of you to help.
For now, the Division of Motor Vehicles is consolidating in-person services to driver license offices large enough to maintain proper social distancing. The DMV has closed about 60 offices and the offices that remain open are handling appointment-only visits.

“We are limiting the number of people that can come into the office at one time so that we can exercise the proper social distancing,” said DMV Commissioner Torre Jessup.

More than a dozen DMV services can be conducted online without ever visiting an office.

License renewals
Vehicle registrations
Duplicate license/ID cards
Renew vehicle registration and pay property taxes
Order personalized/specialized license plates

Before visiting an office, please check to see if it is open and what its operating hours are. Visit the DMV website. https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv
