DMV Closing Driver License Offices To Get Ready For Switch

If you plan to get a drivers license this week in Eastern Carolina you might want to check first. That's because the DMV will be changing over 14 offices in the East to its "central issuance" system.

The offices will have to close for a half day for the switch.

Under the new system customers will no longer get their new licenses on-the-spot. Instead, they will receive a temporary driving permit with the license mailed to them in seven to ten days.

The DMV says the change will protect against identity theft and address fraud.
