Beginning this month, drivers renewing their N.C. license will no longer have to retake a test identifying road signs.
The policy is part of Gov. Pat McCrory’s “Driving Change” initiative to “increase efficiency and improve customer service” at driver license offices, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Sign and symbol testing will still be required to get an initial N.C. driver license. Vision testing will be conducted only as part of a required in-person, in-office license renewal.
The change applies to the renewal of regular Class A, B and C driver licenses and is a result of House Bill 959, enacted during the 2016 session of the General Assembly.
