NC DMV Headquarters Shift Out Of Raleigh Almost Complete

The relocation of the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles headquarters from Raleigh to Rocky Mount is almost complete. DMV Commissioner Torre Jessup told a legislative commitee on Thursday that the final office shifts will be completed by Dec. 19. The move-ins began in July. Almost 500 positions are being relocated. The move is the result of a 2018 law. The Rocky Mount headquarters won’t provide in-person services to the public. Jessup says the state is trying to address a high vacancy rate with headquarters jobs. It's likely that many workers didn't want to make the move.
