COLUMBUS, North Carolina — North Carolina's Division of Motor Vehicles is rolling out a new modern mobile office unit to help citizens in rural areas obtain driver's licenses and perform other motor vehicle business without travelling great distances.
Gov. Pat McCrory's office says the unit was slated to make its first stop Thursday in Polk County. The traveling office is stored in a sport utility vehicle and contains equipment for two license examiner stations. Older mobile units are housed in larger recreational vehicles.
The upgraded unit was first unveiled at the North Carolina State Fair last October.
The Governor's Office said the unit will travel to Clay and Graham counties in addition to Polk during February. Three more units are expected to come online and help citizens where there aren't permanent license offices.
