40 Counties Will Have Fees Waived Until December 1

    Raleigh, N.C.     In an effort to provide relief to residents impacted by Hurricane Matthew, Governor Pat McCrory has directed the Division of Motor Vehicles to temporarily waive certain fees for customers in three additional counties affected by Hurricane Matthew.

    "We are committed to offering every assistance possible to those impacted by Hurricane Matthew so that families can return to their homes, schools, businesses and normal way of life," said Governor McCrory. "Waiving these fees will help build on our efforts to support North Carolinians affected by the storm."

    In addition to the 37 counties announced on October 22, the current DMV fee waiver will be extended to Lee, Moore and Wake counties until December 1.

    The action now applies to the following counties: Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Brunswick, Camden, Carteret, Chowan, Columbus, Craven, Cumberland, Currituck, Dare, Duplin, Edgecombe, Gates, Greene, Harnett, Hoke, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Martin, Moore, Nash, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pasquotank, Pender, Perquimans, Pitt, Robeson, Sampson, Tyrrell, Wake, Washington, Wayne and Wilson.

    Residents in Wake County seeking a waiver of any of the DMV fees must request the waiver and complete a Hurricane Matthew Fee Waiver Affidavit, which is available at local DMV offices.

    While motor vehicle property taxes will still be due during an annual registration renewal, DMV will waive the following fees in the above-listed counties until December 1, 2016:

License/ID Card Fees:

  • Duplicate Driver License: $13
  • Duplicate CDL: $13

Vehicle Fees:

  • Duplicate or Corrected Title: $20
  • Replacement Registration Plates: $20

    In addition to the DMV fee waivers, Governor McCrory signed an executive order calling for flexibility with school calendars, has taken action to provide supplemental Food and Nutrition Services benefits, approved disaster unemployment assistance for those who lost their jobs as a result of Hurricane Matthew, extended the tax filing deadline and waived the late penalty for any taxpayer in the impacted counties, and worked with federal partners to provide more than $61 million in federal funding for individual assistance to date.
