In March 2019, the North Carolina Council of State approved the NCDMV’s headquarters move to Rocky Mount from Raleigh.

The NCDMV headquarters in Raleigh opened on New Bern Avenue in the 1950s. Hazard mitigation addressed safety issues including asbestos and fire code violations a few years ago, but state inspectors and the legislature ordered the DMV to vacate the building by late 2020.

The NCDMV received proposals for 10 possible sites. The lowest bid was the site on North Church Street in Rocky Mount, which is about an hour’s drive east of Raleigh.
