ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Macon County.
The agency, which is at 353 Westgate Plaza, in Franklin, is seeking applications following the announced retirement of longtime contractor Frieda Teem, who has operated the LPA since 1987.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 130 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.
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 or local governments.
Completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than Jan. 18. The applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) can be found on the Connect NCDOT website
. Applicants may call 919-615-8929 with questions.
