NCDMV PRESS RELEASE, January 9, 2019 PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH - The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles today temporarily closed an Asheville License Plate Agency in Buncombe County for possible violations of state law.

The agency, located at 780 Hendersonville Road, was temporarily closed while an investigation is being conducted by the NCDMV's License and Theft Bureau. Investigators determined the alleged activity warranted temporary closure of the office.

DMV representatives will perform an inventory audit of the agency, and secure equipment and supplies belonging to the state. Because the investigation is ongoing, and charges are pending, no additional details can be released at this time.
