Governor Cooper: Order 143
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, some N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles driver license offices have been closed. The closure effects the Jefferson, Newland and Boone offices. Customers who have scheduled appointments at those offices will be contacted by the DMV and will be given new appointments once those offices re-open. Many services can be handled online, including license and registration renewals, duplicate licenses, and more. You can see a list of online services at the DMV website. Those offices that will remain open will be transitioned to handle appointment-only visits and will limit the number of customers allowed inside at the same time, depending on the office size.
