RALEIGH – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles closed the Rural Hall License Plate
Agency (LPA) in Forsyth County today for contract violations and possible violations of state law.
The agency, located at 1014 Bethania-Rural Hall Road, was closed following an investigation
by the NCDMV’s License and Theft Bureau. Investigators determined the activity warranted closure of the office and cancellation of its contract.
The Rural Hall License Plate Agency had been in operation at that location since 1989.
NCDMV representatives will perform a final inventory audit of the agency, and remove equipment and supplies belonging to the state. Because the investigation is ongoing, no additional details can be released at this time.
