DMV Closes 60 DMV offices; 50 to remain open

NC DMV shutters offices

Just before 5 p.m., the NCDMV announced new changes including the closure of 60 locations amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 60 locations with the fewest examiner stations and office setups were chosen to close because it would be difficult to practice social distancing.

Customers who have appointments are being contacted and will be given new appointments.

Affected employees are being moved to locations that will remain open. Some local locations remaining open include Cary, Durham, Clayton, Fayetteville, Fuquay-Varina, Goldsboro, Kinston, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Smithfield, and Wilson.

The open locations will no longer conduct road tests except for commercial driver's licenses and medical reassessments.

All customers visiting open DMV offices will be asked to complete a wellness questionnaire provided by the state health officials to mitigate the potential spread of the virus in our driver license offices.

Customers who have appointments at the open offices can keep those appointments, except for driving tests, and will be given priority if they reschedule their appointments after offices re-open.
