Monroe DMV's Saturday Hours Help Busy Charlotte Metro Area Thursday, May 16, 2013



RALEIGH – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles reminds its customers in the busy Charlotte metro area that the Monroe DMV office is continuing to offer its new Saturday hours this weekend. The Monroe DMV office is also open an additional hour each weekday, now staying open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.


The NC DMV began the expanded hours program in early March and now has 14 driver license offices participating in this statewide effort to reduce overall wait times and improve customer service for drivers. The Monroe DMV office, which is particularly convenient to residents south and east of Charlotte, is located at 3122 Hwy. 74 West. Its phone number is (704) 283-4264.


“We want to accommodate the busy schedules of North Carolinians,” said NCDMV Commissioner James L. Forte. “The Monroe DMV’s expanded hours offer a wait time oasis in the Charlotte area, and we encourage local drivers to take advantage of this opportunity to make their visit to the DMV easier and more convenient."

The office is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. Most regular driver license services, including regular road tests, will be offered during this time, with the exception of CDL skills tests, medical re-exams and motorcycle skills tests. The office is also open for extended hours, from 8 a.m.- 6 p.m., during the week. Testing services will be available until 5:30 p.m., but regular road tests will not be administered during rush hour.


With the addition of the Monroe office to the expanded hours program, DMV is moving closer to its goal of making sure 85 percent of the state’s population will be within 30 miles of an expanded hours office.
