- The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will add seventeen new driver license examiner graduates to seven Triangle-area driver license offices this week. Following graduation from DMV's Basic Examiner Training School today, the examiners will begin work at area offices on Wednesday, Dec. 21.
The examiners graduated following four weeks of intensive classroom study at DMV Headquarters in Raleigh and another eight weeks of practical home-office experience. They will take applications for learner permits, driver licenses and identification cards using modernized systems that create counterfeit-proof documents that protect against identity theft. They will also conduct road tests for new drivers.
"These new examiners will enhance Governor Pat McCrory's efforts to Drive Change' in our offices," said DMV Commissioner Kelly Thomas. "We are happy to bring them on board because they will help us better serve our customers and decrease wait times."
The new examiners and their duty stations are: Liesel Barbour, Jeffrey Calvert, Jacob Cox, Ladonya Potts, Tia Williams, North Raleigh; Clarence Birkhead, Fordeline Garber, Marla Hatton, Melody McMillan, South Durham; Utwana Carter, Natasha Lewis, Joseph Womack, West Raleigh; Monifa Gethers, Mischele Jackson, Cary; Mattie Griffin, Garner; Kathy Jones, Clayton; and Betsy Ray, Hillsborough.
