The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) will be implementing a new system and encourages those who need a new license or need to register a vessel to get these items done ahead of the launch. The new registration system, Go Outdoors North Carolina, will be utilized starting in July. This enhanced system will improve both the user and customer service experience.
During the transition over to the new system, the current system, ALVIN, will be unavailable starting Tuesday, June 27, after 5:00 p.m. through 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 1. If you need to purchase a license or register or renew your vessel registration during this time, you are asked to do so before the shutdown date.
The NCWRC released the following statement in an email to its members:
“As we undergo this transition our goal is to provide the best customer experience, and we appreciate your patience. The information below highlights some of the features that will be available to you in the new Go Outdoors North Carolina system. As we near the launch date, NCWRC will continue to provide you with updates on the transition to this new system, and we will let you know as soon as the system is up and running.”
Lifetime license holders will receive an email in early July that provides information along with a tutorial on how to obtain their seasonal information. The documents will be not be provided before this date. The permit hunt application system will also be available in early July. Program participants will be notified by email when the system is ready, and a tutorial will be provided that demonstrates how to apply for permit hunting opportunities.
