DMV to reopen license plate agency in Huntersville after repeated mistakes, state says

·1 min read

A license plate agency at a North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles office in Huntersville will reopen on Sept. 26 after being closed on Sept. 9 for repeated reports of violations, state officials said.

The office on Mount Holly-Huntersville Road was closed after “several contract violations,” the North Carolina Department of Transportation said.

Channel 9 investigative reporter Jason Stoogenke learned the agency was shut down because of repeated incompetence, mismanagement of DMV property and incorrect performance of vehicle transactions that had to be corrected by the DMV.

It will be the first license plate agency express office in the state. Office hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The express office will not offer title transactions or instant titles.

The closure does not impact the driver’s license office or the license and theft bureau office at the same location, NCDOT said.

More than 120 license plate agencies operate across the state, including three local alternatives, open Monday through Friday.

  • Charlotte, 3250-G Wilkinson Boulevard., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Concord, 929-D Concord Parkway South, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Mooresville, 125-3 North Main Street, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
