UPDATE: Computer network issues that caused sporadic problems Wednesday for some North Carolina DMV license offices and license plate agency offices across the state, and for some online services on the DMV website have been corrected. All offices and the website should be operating normally.

The problem had prevented some offices from processing driver license/ID applications and vehicle registrations or title applications.


Computer network issues are causing sporadic problems in some North Carolina DMV license offices and license plate agency offices across the state, as well as for some online services.

Offices affected by the problem may be unable to process driver license/ID applications and vehicle registrations or title applications. Technicians are working on resolving the problem.

Until service is restored, customers planning to go to their local DMV office this afternoon are urged to call ahead to make sure the service they need will be available. You can access the office numbers by going to the DMV website (http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/contact) , going to the Find a DMV Office section, and then selecting Driver License & School Bus Offices and the county where the office is located, then clicking the Submit button. The address and phone number of each office in that county will come up.

You may call the Rowan office at 704-633-5873
