Okay NCer's what the hay do I have to do to switch my Drivers License when I move. I hear I have to pass a test.
Hey, I'm not the swiftest bugger around. Please don't tell me I have to do essay thingys.
Also, I have a 1997 F150 and a 2001 Ford Taurus.
What am I looking at for taxes on those two babys?

The yearly property tax would be whatever the rate is for your county. If you choose to live within the city limits of a municipality, there will be an additional property tax.

The driving test is multiple choice. I believe 30 questions. Then theres a sign test. You look into the screen they give you a shape of a sign.. and you tell them what the sign is. And what you do. If you struggle.. they help you. I struggled on one,the girl helped me.

We had to take it as transplants from Jersey. Since I am a teenager, I had recently taken the Jersey driving test.. I got a 96 on that test.

I got an 80 on the Carolina test without studying.. I passed. You need an 80 or better to pass. It's not too bad. You can request a book. Know the signs and you'll be okay.

hey its not that hard to pass and sometimes you dont have to take the whole thing it depends on how old your lic is and when it expires. the tax is not all that much . it cost me to change my wife and i plus plates for a 2001 f 350, a 98 harley (flht),2003 expadtion, hope your sitting down 1000.00 in one day. so be ready to go for some money when you go for plates is when you pay for you road use tax.

Yeah, I agree, the test is pretty easy. Like they say, just know the signs like Divided Highway and Railroad Crossing. You will need positive ID in addition to your old drivers license. Positive ID would be a SS card or marriage certificate.

The tags aren't that bad and the personal property tax is Kelly Blue Book at local property tax rate. I have a '92 Mustang, '95 F-150 and a '05 Cobalt and the whole bill was around $200.

The drivers ed book is online on the dmv site. Read it and you'll be fine. I did the test and got one wrong, the fine for littering. There are also a couple of 'sample' tests floating around the net but you wouldn't want to cheat would you?

I just took the test last week and got one wrong also. There's 25 questions and you can get 5 wrong (union county). You have the option to skip any questions that you are not sure of. So if you have any doubts, skip it! Most of the questions are easy. There's actually a sample test on the DMV website. When we got our tags, it cost about $475.00 for an '04 cadillac CTS & an '02 avalanche(that includes the one-time fee for the highway use tax). I was told that we would get a bill in the mail in about 3 months for the property tax.
