RALEIGH, N.C (WAVY) – The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles has suspended the printing of driver’s licenses after people notified errors on the new charges.
According to press release, the North Carolina DMV has asked contractor IDEMIA to stop printing and issuing any licenses the cause of the errors is determined. Nearly 2,400 people have been impacted.
The agency says IDEMIA thinks the flaws may be limited to a single batch sent to people under 21 years old. The DMV learned of the problem Wednesday when people began reporting the errors. The DMV has asked IDEMIA to issue corrected licenses to those who received faulty ones.
“DMV will hold the vendor responsible and require they produce new documents for all those impacted at no cost to the resident,” DMV Commissioner Torre Jessup said.
