Per state law, the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will begin collecting a processing fee on all transactions paid for with a credit or debit card on July 1. This includes transactions occurring in-person, online and at a self-service kiosk.

A provision in last year’s state budget allows NCDMV to collect up to 2% on transactions paid for with a credit or debit card. The fee charged for transactions occurring in-person will be 1.22%; online transactions will be 1.85% and kiosk transactions will be 2%.

The division also wants to remind customers of the quadrennial fees increases that also go into effect on July 1, as directed by state law.
