DMV seeking new contractor due to retirement
RALEIGH - The Wallace license plate agency located at 112 W Main St., will close at the end of business Friday, Jan. 31, due to the retirement of the contractor, Gladys Sikes. Ms. Sikes has operated the Wallace agency since July 1974.
The policy of the Division of Motor Vehicles is to seek new applicants to operate a license plate agency whenever a contract expires or ends. The Division is accepting applications for a new agency in the Wallace area. 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, Jan. 3, 2013.
Until a new agency can be established, nearby vehicle registration services are available at the following locations:
Clinton, 1121 Sunset Ave., (910) 592-5265
Mount Olive, 1130-E N. Breazeale Ave., (919) 658-9921
Elizabethtown, 307 E. Broad St., (910) 862-3527
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.
