    Identical to S 625, filed 4/3/19.

    Amends GS 20-63 concerning the amount of compensation payable by the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to a commission contractor by adding that the standard transaction rate is $2. Provides that the collection of the highway use tax and the removal of a registration stop (was, inspection stop) are considered a separate transaction compensated at three-fourth of the standard rate (was, compensation of $1.30). Adds that the collection of a civil penalty imposed under GS 20-311 for a lapse in financial responsibility is a separate transaction and sets compensation at two times the standard transaction rate. Further amends the statute by providing that the specified items that were to be considered as a single transaction when performed at the same time, is to be compensated at the standard transaction rate (was, $1.46) and amends that list of transactions to include the receipt of the restoration fee imposed for registering a vehicle after a lapse in financial responsibility (previously referred to the receipt of the civil penalty or restoration fee). 

    Enacts new GS 20-63.03 to require the DMV to include, when it advertises the methods by which a vehicle owner may title or register a vehicle, the option to do so at the office of a commission contractor. Prohibits the advertising from encouraging one method over another or implying that going to the office of a commission contractor is a less desirable option. 

    Effective October 1, 2019.
