Instant Titles

​Title applications require 10-15 business days for processing, but the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles offers an expedited titling service – referred to as an instant title – in which titles are processed and issued the same day or next business day.

Instant titles cost $98, in addition to all other fees, and are issued over the counter from the following NCDMV offices.

Charlotte State Specialty Office
6016 Brookshire Blvd.
Charlotte, NC 28216
(704) 399-8306

Raleigh State License Plate Agency
1100 New Bern Ave.
Raleigh, NC 27697
(919) 715-7000
