I'm a NC native, that was my first license. Being in the military I didn't need to update and didn't until just before getting out I got a VA license. Swapped back to NC a bit after, then a CA license when I moved west in '08. Back to NC in '14. Got an AZ license in moving west again in '18. No points, never suspended, no issues there.

I'm moving back to NC for training and gonna swap back to my NC license next Monday. I was looking online at the NC DMV and it shows it as still active.

When I get my NC license what do O need to do to "cancel" my current AZ license? I assumed with modern nationwide databases they automatically notified and cancelled each other but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I don't want to run into the issue with the rule I've seen "prohobiting multiple licenses" either when I go to get my first job out of school or even years down the line (AZ license doesn't expire until 2043)

According to the NCDMV website, The State-to-State Verification Service (part of the Real ID Act) should have cancelled your NC license when you got your AZ license. If your NC license still shows as active, then when you get to NC, I would carry both licenses into the DMV office and get them to confirm your NC license is still valid, then turn your AZ license in and let them get it cancelled.

I went through this when I went to get my permit in PA. I was told my NY license was still active. I had to contact NYSDMV to tell them to close it out. I was able to do it over the phone.

Thanks for the info guys. That was basically my plan. I still have the physical NC license as AZ didn't want it. Am gonna go in, explain what I need and ask how best to proceed. If NC can't or won't cancel the AZ I'll try over the phone or absolute worst case I'll actually be back out West in June and can do it in person.

I didn't get a Real ID when I got my AZ license as at the time, despite having a passport, SENTRI, retired military ID and birth certificate I didn't have a physical copy of my Social Security card. Figured since I have a passport, passport card and SENTRI and all 3 enable air travel, why bother. That may be why the automatic cancellation didn't occur.

This time I'll get RealID just so I don't need to carry an extra ID for air travel.

When I got my CDL ,they asked if I wanted the Real ID , I said no, I have a passport, and the passport ID card. But when I got the hard copy, it was the Real ID lol whatever (California)

Is it RFID and if so does it come with that foil lined card holder like the passport card did?
