ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants for a commissioned contractor to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Granville County.
The current agency, at 120 Roxboro Rd., in Oxford, will permanently close on Nov. 17 after the operator’s contract ends. The LPA in Oxford has been operated by Penny Ellington since 2009.
In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses or local governments.
For people interested in operating an LPA in Granville County, completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than Sept. 27. The applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) can be found on the Connect NCDOT website
. Interested applicants may call 919-615-8105 with questions.
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.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 127 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.
Three nearby license plate agencies offer service Monday through Friday:
• Henderson, 946-D W. Andrews Ave., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 252-438-3528
• Roxboro, 811 N. Madison Blvd., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 336-597-4809
