ROCKY MOUNT – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will open a new license plate agency (LPA) on Jan. 3 in Stanly County.
The agency will be located at 814 N.C. Hwy. 24-27 Bypass East, Unit 1 in Albemarle at the Albemarle Crossing Shopping Center and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, except on state holidays. The agency will be operated by Kim Love.
The new agency replaces a previous agency in Albemarle that closed in February.
In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses or local governments.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags, handicap placards and duplicate registrations. There are currently 126 license plate agencies operating across North Carolina.
Services such as property tax payments and registration renewals can also be completed online at www.MyNCDMV.gov
