North Carolina DOT: History & Organization
I85 I40 Greensboro, 1966

NCDOT has a long history of public service...

With its roots dating to 1915 in the establishment of the State Highway Commission. In 1941, The General Assembly created the Department of Motor Vehicles, consolidating services previously provided by the Secretary of State and the Department of Revenue. The Executive Organization Act of 1971 combined the State Highway Commission and the Department of Motor Vehicles to form the N.C. Department of Transportation and Highway Safety. In 1979, "Highway Safety" was dropped from the department's name when the Highway Patrol Division was transferred to the newly created Department of Crime Control and Public Safety.

Today, NCDOT employs over 14,000 people...

With varying skills and backgrounds across the state. NCDOT is divided into 11 main divisions with 14 local division offices under the Division of Highways located geographically throughout the state. These 14 local division offices are responsible for construction, maintenance, roadside environmental programs, traffic services and the fiscal and facility operations involved in administering these functions. Additionally, the Division of Motor Vehicles operates 124 driver license offices, three mobile driver license offices, nine weigh stations and eight enforcement district offices.
