Contract Applications Sought to Operate Eden License Plate Agency

ROCKY MOUNT –The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is again seeking applicants for a commissioned contractor to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Eden.  

In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses or local governments. The previous agency, at 712 Washington St., in Eden, closed on Sept. 28, 2023, after the operator’s contract ended.

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. 

Completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than May 31. The applications (Form MVR-93I, Form MVR-93B, or Form MVR-93M) can be found on the Connect NCDOT website. Interested applicants may call 919-615-8521 with questions.

NCDMV first solicited a new contractor in June 2023, but a suitable applicant was not found. The division again solicited a new contractor in November 2023, but no applications were received. And in January 2024, the division again solicited a new contractor, but a suitable applicant was not found.  Previous applicants must reapply.

LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 121 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.

People are reminded that many vehicle services can be completed online, including property tax payments and registration renewals. To get started, please visit​.
