ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants for a Commissioner Contractor to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Hertford County.
The agency, which is at 907 Memorial Drive East, in Ahoskie, is scheduled to close on March 25 after the current operator’s contract ends. The Ahoskie LPA has been operated by Jerry Casteloe since 1992.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 131 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.
Three nearby license plate agencies offer service Monday through Friday:
• Edenton, 555 Virginia Rd., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 252-482-2424
• Hertford, 114 W. Grubb St., from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., 252-426-1087
• Windsor, 122 E. Granville St., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 252-794-3253
In addition, services such as property tax payments and registration renewals can be completed online at www.MyNCDMV.gov
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 April 21. The applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) can be found on the Connect NCDOT website
