Public Meeting Set for New DMV Hearing Fees

Last Updated on September 19, 2017 3:38 pm

RALEIGH – As directed by the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles will begin assessing fees for administrative review requests in January 2018.

These fees are required for hearing requests that review the revocation or suspension of licenses for drivers, inspection stations, automotive dealers and mechanics. There are no fees for medical hearings.

Most hearings will be scheduled when the request is submitted in writing and the fees are paid in full. Fees for hearings that review an applicant’s compliance with their license restoration agreement may be paid after the hearing.

Hearing fees may be waived for applicants who meet the criteria and submit an Affidavit of Indigence to the DMV with their written hearing request.

The DMV will notify eligible applicants in writing, detailing how to request a hearing, the applicable fees and deadlines for submitting a request.

The legislation for the fee assessment was approved on June 28, 2017 and affects 19 hearing requests.

A public hearing will be held on Sept. 25 at 6:00 p.m. in Raleigh at the John Chavis Media Center located at 505 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd to provide the public an opportunity to provide comments and feedback.

Written comments will be accepted at the public hearing and online at through Oct. 3, 2017.
