Once you land in Wake County you have 30 days to register your auto and get your NC License.
The fee's assocuated with regitering your auto are a bit high because you will have to pay property tax of appx.1.1% on the value of your vehicle. Each and every year. Having come here from California this wasn't anything new but for the northerners it's a shock. Insurance seem to be less on all fronts. Speeding 14 mph over the speed limit is a required court appearence and fine of about $200. For more info on schools, tax rates, nightlife home prices etc....visit www.raleighhomesandproperty.com.
