Greenville license plate agency will close temporarily at the end of business day Thursday

State of North Carolina

One of two license plate agencies in Greenville will close at the end of the business day tomorrow (Thursday) when the current operator’s temporary contract ends.

Officials with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles say the agency on Stantonsburg Rd, at the Stanton Square Shopping Center in Greenville, has been operated by James Locks since last November, and a new agency will open under a selected contractor at a later date.

There are three other LPA’s nearby – one on North Creek Drive in Greenville, one on Main Street in Farmville, and the other on Bridge Street in Washington.

Officials say that many vehicle services can also be completed online.

An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to eastern North Carolina in 2019 to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of kiddo cuddling, reading, and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
