RALEIGH –The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Chowan County.
The current agency, located at 810 N. Broad St.in Edenton, closed indefinitely on Feb. 8 following the passing of longtime former contractor Jeannette Dowd.
The division’s policy is to open applications to operate a license plate agency after the expiration or end of a contract, or when the need arises for a new or additional agency in a certain county. In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses.
Completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than March 18. The applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) are located on the Connect NCDOT website
. Interested applicants may call 919-615-6053 with questions.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 126 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.
