Staff shortages impact DMV services; Over 100 jobs up for grabs

Extended summer hours begin May 21 in time for high season

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) – All sectors – have been affected by the shortage of employees.

North Carolina’s Motor Vehicle Division wants to hire more than 100 driver’s license examiners statewide — and a degree isn’t necessary to do the job

Summer is the “peak season” demand, and according to spokesperson Marty Homan, extended Saturday hours will begin May 21.

Homan points out that these hours are for express services and walk-in customers.

He advises before heading to the DMV, check online first to see if an online option is available before coming in person.

The shortage has led to longer wait times, which the agency is trying to rectify.

“It prevents us from being able to provide services as quickly as we would like,” he said. “If everyone should, as soon as they get a notice, take care of this online business, if they can.

“For some reason they can’t due to special circumstances, make that appointment well in advance, don’t wait until the last minute.”
