First North Carolina Mobile Office Coming to Central North Carolina

Raleigh - Wake Forest area residents will be among the first stops in central North Carolina to experience the Division of Motor Vehicles' new mobile office. The office, which carries two driver license examiner stations, is part of Governor Pat McCrory's initiative to improve customer service and reduce wait times at the DMV.

"This first of its kind mobile office allows us to connect all North Carolinians to the services they need, regardless of where they live," Governor McCrory said. "This one stop shop allows customers to handle all their motor vehicle needs close to home."

The new compact mobile office will make its area debut on Monday, March 7. The office will be located at the Town of Wake Forest Renaissance site at 405 South Brooks Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday.

"We are particularly happy to bring the first new NCDMV mobile office to central North Carolina," said Motor Vehicles Commissioner Kelly J. Thomas. "This new mobile office will offer towns like Wake Forest all across North Carolina a new way to provide better service to their citizens. We are very happy that NCDMV could have a hand in that."

The new mobile office mirrors the driver license services that are offered in brick-and-mortar offices.

"This new unit not only gives us new flexibility, but it also offers a completely new tool in our toolbox for serving DMV customers," said Department of Transportation Secretary Nick Tennyson. "It is the first of its kind, and we would not be at all surprised to have other jurisdictions in the country show an interest in this new concept."

After leaving Wake Forest Monday, the mobile office will observe the following schedule in March. It will then return to Wake Forest on Monday, March 21.

DMV plans to add three more mobile offices and make 70 stops throughout the state.

The new mobile offices are part of Governor McCrory's Driving Change initiatives at DMV. The agency is now offering online driver license renewals statewide, issues a more durable and secure driver license, has a new MyDMV portal that brings single-point access to all online DMV services, and has updated DMV offices across the state to improve services and reduce wait times.
