Hearing Fees

Unless otherwise indicated, applicants must pay administrative hearing fees at the time they request an administrative hearing.

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles does not process hearing requests without the applicable fee paid in full.

NCDMV waives administrative hearing fees for applicants who meet household income criteria and have submitted an Affidavit of Indigence with their written hearing request. (The form is also available in Spanish.)
