People seeking a driver’s license in Polk County will no longer have wait outside as of today, Thursday, Jan. 28.

The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, Jan. 25 and heard from county manager Marche Pittman that the state is retiring its old mobile units that formerly were located in a van at the Columbus Post Office. The new units, although still mobile, will be located in the county’s tag and tax office on Walker Street in Columbus.

The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will still bring the units one day per week. There is a “show and tell” this morning for local residents to see the new units at the tag and tax office at 10 a.m.

The units will come to the county tag and tax office the same as the previous schedule, every Thursday from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
