HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory doesn’t like the long wait times at Division of Motor Vehicles office and has pledged to make getting a North Carolina driver’s license or plate less of a chore.
McCrory and state transportation leaders prepared Thursday to unveil the next step in their DMV modernization program as they opened a new agency office in Huntersville.
The administration last year opened new DMV offices and extended office times in some locations as a first step. The governor said earlier this year he would unveil a statewide modernization effort at DMV that would include new technology to improve efficiency.
During his 2012 campaign, then-candidate McCrory often discussed in stump speeches having to wait in line for an hour to get his license renewed.
