DMV seeking new contractor due to retirement
RALEIGH — While the South Asheville license plate agency is still slated to close due to the retirement of the contractor, it is working with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles to minimize service disruptions. Agency Contractor David Sharpton has postponed the agency’s closing date, previously scheduled for May 30, to help make a smoother transition to a new contractor.
The agency, located at 780 Hendersonville Road, Suite 8, will continue to operate on its current schedule for the foreseeable future so that the office may have to be closed only briefly before a new contractor is chosen.
NCDMV will continue to seek new applicants to operate an area license plate agency and is accepting applications for a new agency in south Asheville. Routinely, it takes about four months to establish a new agency.
Plate agency applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) are located on the NCDMV website. Interested applicants are invited to download an application form for a motor vehicle LPA or call (919) 861-3332 with questions. The application must be returned to NCDMV no later than Friday, May 2, 2014.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, about 120 license plate agencies operate across North Carolina.
