Services Provided: The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires automobile owners to have liability insurance coverage before registering your car in NC. State law requires that you register your vehicle within 30 days of establishing residence in the state. The DMV also recommends replacement of your driver’s license at that time. North Carolina plates are only good if you hold continuous insurance. Should your insurance lapse at any time your license plate must be surrendered to the DMV. To re-license your vehicle, you must pay a $25.00 fee in addition to the cost of the license plate. To obtain NC license tags, you must have:
- Insurance (name and policy number). If new policy, name of agent and agency.
- Title (in owner’s name) or properly reassigned to them. If the bank holds your title, you must have current registration and name and address of bank.
- If you came from a non-title state, you need the current registration and 2 notarized copies of the bill of sale from the last two owners.
