North Carolina-Driver’s License-September 9


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-September 9

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

There’s now one less thing you have to do if you need to renew your driver license in North Carolina.

Starting this month, the NCDMV will no longer require you to take the sign test if you’re renewing your license. However, individuals getting their license in North Carolina for the first time will still have to take the sign test.

This is part of the governor’s plan to increase efficiency and improve customer service at driver license offices.

Your license is issued for a period of 5 or 8 years depending on your age.

  • Ages 18 to 65: 8 years
  • Age 66 or older: 5 years

In North Carolina first time license applications require a driving test. A few key skills include:

  • Approaches to intersections, stop signs and traffic signals;
  • Backing;
  • Turn signals and use of the horn;
  • Following another vehicle
  • Three-point turnabout.

For what it is worth use of turn signals and following another vehicle correctly still could use a little work in North Carolina.

Here is a little rant from Canada that might apply to some fellow North Carolinians.
