14 New License Examiners Headed to Statewide DMV Offices

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will add fourteen new driver license examiner graduates to twelve driver license offices across the state next week. Following graduation from DMV’s Basic Examiner Training School on Thursday, Jan. 5, the examiners will begin work at area offices onMonday, Jan. 9.

The examiners graduated following four weeks of intensive classroom study at the N.C. Justice Academy in Salemburg and another eight weeks of practical home-office experience. They will take applications for learner permits, driver licenses and identification cards using modernized systems that create counterfeit-proof documents that protect against identity theft. They will also conduct road tests for new drivers.

“These new examiners will enhance continued excellent customer service in our offices,” said DMV Commissioner Kelly Thomas. “We are happy to bring them on board because they will help us better serve our customers and decrease wait times.”

The new examiners and their duty stations are: Azaria Anderson, South Durham; Perridia Dozier, Garner; Ella Gilchrist, West Charlotte; Teresa Grady, Terri Rhodes, North Raleigh; Dione Harris, Huntersville; Connie Jones, Carrboro; Lisa Kushmaul, East Charlotte; Guy Lofton, Michael Westbrook, West Greensboro; Carlotta Nash, Concord; Marlene Rodriguez, Cary; Amy Singleton, Lexington; Michael Williams, Smithfield.
