Turning a corner: DMV drops road sign ID test for renewals


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina motorists trying to renew their driver licenses no longer have to worry about red octagons, yellow diamonds and curvy arrows.

Beginning this month, The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will no longer require drivers trying to renew their licenses to retake a test on the identification of road signs. DMV will continue to require sign and symbol testing for people trying to get their North Carolina driver license for the first time.

Vision testing will be conducted only as part of a required in-person, in-office license renewal.

This policy is part of Gov. Pat McCrory’s “Driving Change” initiative to increase efficiency and improve customer service at driver license offices.

The policy change applies to the renewal of regular Class A, B and C driver licenses.
