More DMV changes in 2016 to further reduce wait times

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCT) – North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory announced customer service changes at the Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) to be put in place in 2016.

The state will begin using automated Teen Driving Logs next year. Both teen drivers and their parents can complete the online logs.

The logs can show the teen’s driving practice times as they prepare for their final tests at the DMV.

At 114 offices in the state, new cameras, scanners, printers and credit card machines are already being installed. There are 70 offices in the state that process new driver licenses and ID cards. By January 7, the rest of the offices will accept applications.

“North Carolina continues to be one of the fastest growing states in the nation,” Governor McCrory said. “These improvements will not only make doing business with DMV more convenient and easier today, it will prepare us to efficiently handle the growth that is coming our way.”

Governor McCrory also pointed to the success of online driver license renewals and said nearly 174,000 drivers used the DMV website to renew their licenses.
