ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles’ license plate agency (LPA) in Eden will close at 5 p.m. on Sept. 28 after the current operator’s contract ends. The current agency, at 712 Washington St., in Eden, has been operated by Gina Childress since 2012.
In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses or local governments.
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.
Once a new contractor has been selected, training will begin for management and staff before the new agency opens.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 128 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.
Two nearby license plate agencies offer service Monday through Friday:
• Reidsville, 219-B Turner Dr., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 336-347-0580
• Madison, 101 E. Murphy St., from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 336-949-4770
In addition, services such as property tax payments and registration renewals can be completed online at www.MyNCDMV.gov
