See attached PDF’s of the proposed rules.

An explanation of the proposed rules and the reason for the proposed rules:

NC GS 20-7 requires that applicants for a driver’s license must complete certain tests to be established by the Division of Motor Vehicles. These tests are set out in 19A NCAC 02E.0201. The proposed amendments to this rule will make minor changes to the content of the required tests, and will clarify which tests are applicable to which applicants. The proposed amendments remove the written test requirement for an applicant in possession of a valid, unexpired driver’s license issued by another state. Additionally, the proposed amendments extend from one year to two years the period of time an applicant’s license can be expired before the applicant must take the full examination.
