NCDMV Closes Chapel Hill License Plate Agency Friday, July 14, 2017

RALEIGH, N.C. –The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles today closed the Chapel Hill License Plate Agency for possible violations of state laws.

The agency, located at 1704-B E. Franklin St. in Gateway Commons, was closed following an investigation by NCDMV’s License and Theft Bureau that began with an anonymous tip.  Investigators determined that the activity warranted closure of the office and cancellation of its contract.

The Chapel Hill plate agency has been in operation at that location since 2013.

DMV representatives will perform a final inventory audit of the agency, and remove equipment and supplies belonging to the state. Because the investigation is ongoing, and charges are pending, no additional details can be released at this time.

Two nearby license plate agencies offering service Monday through Friday are in Durham at 1058 W. Club Blvd, Suite 626, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., (919) 286-4908, and at 5410 Hwy. 55, Suite AB, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., (919) 544-3662.

In addition, services such as property tax payments and registration renewals can be done online at

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.
