NCDMV Serves Up Convenience at North Carolina State Fair Thursday, October 17, 2013

Mobile Unit to issue ID Cards, Driver License Renewals, Duplicates


RALEIGH – The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will serve up convenience through express services at the North Carolina State Fair, making ID cards, renewal and duplicate driver licenses easy to get. Look for DMV’s mobile unit parked just off the midway, between the Jim Graham Building and Dorton Arena.


Thanks to the N.C. Department of Agriculture, DMV is making its own homecoming, returning to the fair after being away for the past five years. It brings along friendly staff and a cadre of DMV inspectors from its License and Theft Bureau, who will help provide security at the fair and man an information booth daily at the Kerr Scott Building.


The DMV mobile unit will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily during the fair, offering information about all things DMV.


From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, the unit will also offer opportunities for fairgoers to renew their driver licenses, as long as no written or road test is required. Driver licenses are issued every eight years through age 65 and are priced at $4 per year. Drivers over 65 are issued licenses for five years. 


Duplicate driver licenses to replace lost or damaged credentials may be ordered at the fair for mail delivery. Additionally, ID cards for children and adults can also be ordered. Both items cost $10 each. The mobile unit will also have state maps and driver handbooks available.


DMV urges citizens to come prepared with the necessary documents to order ID cards. Citizens applying for an ID card for the first time will need to provide proof of their full name and date of birth. They will also need to provide a Social Security card and proof of residency in North Carolina. A full list of acceptable documents is available on the official NCDMV website.
