This Week at NCDOT: Save Time at the NCDMV and Football Trains



​RALEIGH – The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The stories below are also featured in NCDOT Now​, the department’s weekly newscast.

NCDMV Online Services

The last two weeks of August can be the busiest at the NCDMV, so here are some things to know before you go.

Check to see if your service can be completed online at You don’t need an office visit to renew a driver license or vehicle registration, order a duplicate license or ID, or change your address. If you need to visit a DMV office, make sure you have all the proper documentation to complete your business before making the trip.

Finally, since REAL ID applications must be completed in-person, the Division of Motor Vehicles recommends you wait until after the summer peak season to get one. However, before you make an appointment, go online to determine if getting a REAL ID makes sense for you.
