Obtain Auto Liability Insurance


By law, North Carolina drivers must maintain auto liability insurance, as well as uninsured motorist coverage.

Obtain a North Carolina Driver License


Within 60 days of establishing a permanent residence here, you must obtain a North Carolina Driver License. Written and road tests may be waived if you have a valid license from another state. It is still a good idea though, to familiarize yourself with the North Carolina Driver Handbook so that you are aware of our state’s road safety laws.

To apply for a North Carolina Driver License, you must visit a local DMV office, in person. Visit the DMV website for a detailed list of what to bring with you, including proof of auto liability insurance.

Title and Register Your Vehicle


After obtaining a North Carolina Driver License, new residents must also register their vehicle. This is how you will get your North Carolina license plate. You will need the title to your vehicle, or a registration card if your vehicle is financed. Click here for more information on what’s required.

A Note on Vehicle Inspections: Although new residents can initially register vehicles without an inspection, North Carolina requires a vehicle inspection before you can renew your vehicle registration and license plates a year from now. Just a heads up that vehicle taxes, the license plate renewal, and the state inspection all come due at the same time each year. (The tax and tags are billed together; you will get the vehicle inspected separately).
