North Carolina driver licenses and vehicle registrations contain private information that is susceptible to identity theft and identity fraud.
Using the latest technology, the N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles License & Theft Bureau investigates crimes of wrongfully obtaining a state-issued credential or vehicle title by submitting or using fraudulent information.
Anyone who believes their information has been used to fraudulently obtain a driver license or ID card should contact the License & Theft Bureau by visiting a
License & Theft Bureau district office, or submitting a complaint through the
NCDMV License & Theft Portal.

Identity theft should also be reported online to the
Federal Trade Commission or by calling (877) 438-4338.
