Contract Applications Sought to Operate Jackson License Plate Agency

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is seeking applicants to operate a license plate agency (LPA) in Jackson County.

The agency, which is at 454 East Main Street, Suite 3, in Sylva, is seeking applications following the death earlier this week of longtime contractor Betty Painter. The Sylva LPA has been operated by the Painter family since 1971. The agency is continuing to operate under a temporary contract.

LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, 131 license plate agencies operate in North Carolina.

The division’s policy is to open applications to operate a license plate agency after the expiration or end of a contract, or when the need arises for a new or additional agency in a certain county.

In North Carolina, NCDMV oversees LPAs, but the agencies are managed by private businesses or local governments.

Completed applications must be returned to NCDMV no later than Nov. 8.  The applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) can be found on the Connect NCDOT website.  Interested applicants may call 919-615-8929 with questions.
