NCDMV Joins Program To Elminate Duplicate Licenses

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

Starting Monday (Feb. 25th) North Carolina joins 21 other states in using the State-to-State Verification Service to confirm a person’s identity and driving history from other states. The service, which is outlined in the federal REAL ID Act, requires a person to have only one driver's license or ID card in one state at a time.

With State-to-State, the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles can determine if applicants already hold a driver's license or ID card in another state and verify important information such as suspended licenses. When a North Carolina driver's license or ID card is issued, any out-of-state issuances will be canceled.

Existing North Carolina driver's licenses and ID cards will be checked for duplicate issuances in the states already participating in the program including Virginia, Tennessee, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakoa, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. More states are expected to join the program through 2022. NCDMV estimates more than 210,000 North Carolina driver's license or ID holders have duplicate issuances in other states.

When duplicates are found, NCDMV says the most recent issuance will remain valid for the driver's license or ID card. Any and all others will be cancelled.

State-to-State is administered by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.
