ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants for a commissioned contractor to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in southwestern Wake County.
The previous agency, at 408 Village Walk Dr., in Holly Springs, permanently closed on August 10.
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 southwestern Wake County, completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than Oct. 7. 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:
• Angier, 18 E. Depot St., from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., 919-639-9900
• Cary, 1251 Buck Jones Rd., from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., 919-469-1444
• Sanford, 331 Wilson Rd., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 919-774-6027
