NCDMV will launch expanded hours at eight additional driver license offices from the mountains to the coast starting Saturday, May 4. The new hours are part of an effort to improve customer service and reduce wait times for North Carolina drivers.
Expanded schedules will begin Saturday at the Wilkesboro office, along with South Wilmington, Jacksonville, Manteo, Ahoskie, West Greensboro, Monroe, and Asheville offices. Fourteen driver license offices statewide now offer the new schedule.
NCDMV first began expanded hours on March 2 in North Raleigh, West Charlotte and Greenville. Offices in South Fayetteville, South Durham and North Charlotte were added on April 6. As a result of Saturday hours at these six offices, DMV has completed over 2,000 issuances during March and April.
Five of the new offices, located in South Wilmington, Jacksonville, West Greensboro, Monroe and Asheville, will be open each Saturday from 8 a.m. to Noon and, beginning on Monday, May 6, also for an additional hour on Monday to Friday afternoons, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Most regular driver license services, including regular road tests, will be offered on Saturdays, with the exception of CDL skills tests, medical re-exams and motorcycle skills tests. Testing services at these offices will be available until 5:30 p.m. weekdays, but regular road tests will not be administered during rush hour.
The other three offices, located in Manteo, Ahoskie and Wilkesboro, will open the first Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. to Noon and will be closed the following Wednesday afternoon from Noon to 5 p.m. They will offer the same Saturday services as the other DMV offices, but they will not open for an additional hour during the week.
Over the coming months, DMV will announce the participation of additional offices offering expanded hours.
