Raleigh - The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will add twelve new driver license examiner graduates to eight driver license offices across the state next week. Following graduation from DMV's Basic Examiner Training School on Friday, Jan. 13, the examiners will begin work at area offices on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
The examiners graduated following four weeks of intensive classroom study at the DMV Training Center in Huntersville, 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.
"We welcome these new examiners who will continue to offer excellent customer service in driver license offices across North Carolina," said Acting DMV Commissioner Eric Boyette. "Our goal is to continue to decrease wait times while increasing the level of service."
The new examiners and their duty stations are: Susana Bolanos, William Perry, III, Asheville; Timmy Edwards, Forest City; Kristina George, Mooresville; Caroline Gibbs, Fuquay-Varina; Rebecca Higgins, Nicole Hunt, Morganton; Sonya Langley, Kyle Parrish, Smithfield; Kierra Melton, South Charlotte; Cindy Smith, Jefferson; Jacqueline Wright, West Charlotte.
