Nine DMV Offices in Eastern N.C. Remain Closed Following Hurricane Matthew

Raleigh - Nine N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles Driver License offices and License Plate Agency offices across eastern and central North Carolina remain closed Friday due to the effects of Hurricane Matthew.

Flooding and power outages forced many offices to close earlier this week. DMV field office staff have assessed damage as relief efforts continue. Several offices that were closed earlier in the week have re-opened, but other field offices may remain closed into next week.

Driver License offices remain closed until further notice in the following locations: Edenton, Lumberton, and Tarboro.

License Plate Agency offices remain closed until further notice in the following locations: Hookerton, Kinston, Lumberton, Whiteville, and Tarboro.

Meanwhile, nearly 50 License and Theft agents continue to assist local law enforcement in providing security to affected areas.

The License and Theft Bureau is a member of the State Emergency Response Team (SERT), which includes assisting the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Management Administration, and state and local authorities. Bureau agents also assist local law enforcement in carrying out routine police duties, as well as to supplement local agency needs during a declared state of emergency.
