North Carolina's Department of Motor Vehicles abruptly closed the Huntersville license plate agency on Friday; the office may not reopen until November. The department was in charge of car registration, title transfers, license plate renewals, replacement tags, and duplicate registrations.

When contract infractions were uncovered, management decided to shut down the operation. North Carolina's License Plate Agencies (LPAs) are overseen by the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV), although they are independently owned and operated.

Since 2015, Robert Grier has been in charge of the agency located at 108 Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road in Huntersville.

Several contract violations led to the closure of the previous agency, which was located at 12101 Mount Holly-Huntersville Road. The Department of Motor Vehicles lists the following infractions:

  1. Extreme incompetence in the performance of the contract, either once or on multiple occasions.
  2. The improper management of DMV property, including vehicles and other equipment.
  3. Errors in the performance of car transactions negatively influence the procedures of the DMV and require effort on the part of the DMV to repair.
  4. Errors in the performance of automobile transactions harm the general population as a whole.

The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) is responsible for regulating LPAs. However, private companies or municipal governments run the agencies. Since 2015, Robert Grier has been running the agency based in Huntersville.

This shutdown will not affect the Driver License office of the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) or the License and Theft Bureau District office in the same building.

In addition to providing services for vehicle registration and title transactions, LPAs also renew vehicle license plates, replace lost tags, and duplicate issue registrations. There are currently 126 agencies in North Carolina that issue license plates.

There are three license plate agencies in the area that are open Monday through Friday:

  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Monday through Friday) at 3250-G Wilkinson Blvd., Charlotte, NC.
  • 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., 704-723-4991 • Concord, 929-D Concord Parkway S.

During business hours, please contact:

  • Mooresville, 125-3 North Main St., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. also facilitates the online completion of other services, such as paying property taxes and renewing vehicle registrations.
