DMV investigative office moving

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, November 28, 2012

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles announced today that the Salisbury License and Theft Bureau office, located on Kerr Street, will close at 10 a.m. on Thursday in preparation for its move to 5780 S. Main St. It will reopen in its new location at 8 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 29.
This is NOT the driver registration/tag office, which will remain on Kerr Street and is operated by an independent contractor.
The new office for the investigative branch of the DMV will be on the second floor of the DMV Building directly above the Salisbury Driver License office on South Main Street. It is accessible at the rear of the building. Patrons who cannot climb the stairs can contact office staff on the ground level to receive assistance from an inspector. DMV License and Theft Bureau inspectors will be in the office Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. At other times, inspectors perform duties in the field.
The new office phone number will be 704-857-0361, and the fax number will be 704-856-0258.
DMV’s License and Theft Bureau inspectors investigate cases of vehicle theft, odometer fraud, identity fraud and theft, and vehicle inspection fraud. They also license and regulate new and used car dealers, as well as vehicle inspection stations, to ensure compliance with state law and the federal Clean Air Act.
Inspectors also investigate citizen complaints against car dealerships, vehicle inspection stations and any business open to the public for the repair, storage, parking and towing of motor vehicles.
