State-mandated charges now required
The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles will start collecting the state-mandated fees for administrative hearings beginning Jan. 1.
This legislation affects 19 administrative hearing types that review the revocation or suspension of vehicle license plates and licenses for drivers, inspection stations, automotive dealers and mechanics. There are no fees for medical hearings.
The DMV will notify eligible customers by mail on how to request a hearing, applicable fees and deadlines for submitting a request.
Most hearings will be scheduled when the request is submitted in writing and the fees are paid in full. A waiver of fees is available for applicants who meet certain household income criteria.
