Curious about whether you need a North Carolina driver’s license to buy a car in North Carolina? We get this question a lot, as there are a lot of people in North Carolina who have moved to the state from another state, and do not yet have a NC drivers license. Therefore many want to know, do I need a NC driver’s license to buy a car in North Carolina?
The answer is NO. You do not need a North Carolina driver’s license to buy a car in North Carolina. We are 100% sure of this fact. We spoke directly to someone who confirmed that they bought a Honda CRV here in North Carolina, and their driver’s license at the time was from California. Car dealers can sell you a car no matter what state your driver’s license is from. If a car dealer tells you they cannot sell you a vehicle because you have a license from another state.
