WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The DMV office on Carolina Beach Road will have expanded hours starting this weekend.

The new hours are part of an effort to improve customer service and reduce wait times for drivers.

According to a press release from the NCDOT, the office located at 2390 Carolina Beach Road will be open each Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon and for an additional hour Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

These changes will start Saturday, May 4.

The NCDOT said most regular driver license services, including regular road tests, will be offered on Saturdays, with the exception of CDL skills tests, medical re-exams and motorcycle skills tests.

The NCDMV first expanded hours in North Raleigh, West Charlotte and Greenville on March 2. Since the expansion, DMV has completed over 2,000 issuances during March and April, according to the NCDOT.
