The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) opened a mobile office at Fort Bragg Wednesday, bringing DMV services back to the Fayetteville, N.C., post for the first time since 2008.
The mobile office will visit the installation six days a month, and allow personnel and family members to handle most driver license services. The mobile units include credit card readers, mobile cameras and vision and knowledge skills testing.
The move is intended to better serve military families, with the new office considered a tangible way the state can demonstrate its commitment, reported the Fayetteville Observer. Transportation Secretary Nick Tennyson said the DMV may be the first, and sometimes the only, interaction troops and their families have with their state government.
The Fort Bragg DMV is expected to serve between 60 and 80 customers daily.
“This is one more step by this state to lighten the administrative load in the soldier’s rucksack, enabling them to focus more on training for that next deployment,” said Military and Veterans Affairs Secretary Cornell Wilson Jr.
