The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is accepting applications for a Watauga County license plate agency. The current agency operates under a contract that will expire in September.
The policy of the Division is to open applications to operate a license plate agency whenever a contract expires or ends. The current agency, located at 331 Queen St., Room 101 in Boone, and run by Watauga County, will continue to operate during the application process and its contractor may reapply to operate the business. Routinely, it takes about four months to complete the application process.
Plate agency applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) are located on the Connect NCDOT website. Interested applicants are invited to download an application form for a motor vehicle LPA or call (919) 861-3332 with questions. The application must be returned to NCDMV no later than Friday, May 9, 2014.
LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, about 120 license plate agencies operate across North Carolina.
