Polk County License Plate Agency



For the health and safety of our customers and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, some N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles driver license offices will be closed starting Wednesday, March 18. Due to current conditions with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all mobile stops have been cancelled until further notice. This includes the Polk County Mobile DMV office located at 51 Walker Street in Columbus, which is typically opened on Thursday of the first full week of each month. Please contact NCDMV for further information.
Asheville, Hendersonville and Forest City offices are currently by appointment only. 


Polk County contracts with the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles to operate a License Plate Agency or Tag Office.

Please contact our staff to make sure you have all the proper paperwork before you visit the tag office.
