New Driver License Examiners Assigned To DMV Offices

As part of the effort to improve customer service at driver license offices statewide, the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will add 15 new driver license examiner graduates to 14 offices next week.

The new employees graduated Friday from DMV’s Basic Examiner Training School and will start work Monday, Feb. 18.

The 15 new employees bring to 235 the number of positions the DMV has filled since Aug. 1, 2018. Driver license examiners make up 101 of those vacancies. DMV has also instituted express lines, established dedicated road test teams and used additional customer service representatives to help people in line make sure they have the appropriate documents.

The examiners graduated after four weeks of intensive classroom study at the N.C. Justice Academy in Salemburg. They will take applications for learner permits, driver licenses, REAL ID and basic identification cards using modernized systems that create counterfeit-proof documents that protect against identity theft. They will also conduct road tests for new drivers.

“With this great responsibility, these new examiners must make sure the drivers on our state’s roads are qualified and ready to operate a vehicle safely,” said DMV Regional Chief Examiner Genia Newkirk. “Their trusted judgement is imperative to protecting everyone who travels on our highways.”

The new examiners and their duty stations are:

  • Purusha Jones

  • Cynthia Chavis
