License Plate Agency to Reopen in Wilmington


ROCKY MOUNT – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will reopen a license plate agency (LPA) on April 16 in Wilmington. The office closed on Sept. 22, 2023, when the previous operator’s contract ended.

The agency will be operated by Ursula Ortega and will be at the same location as the previous agency at 13 S. Kerr Ave., at the Market Plaza Shopping Center, in Wilmington. The LPA will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, except on state holidays. 

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 121 license plate agencies operating across North Carolina.

Services such as property tax payments and registration renewals can also be completed online at​.
