Vehicle Registration and Information

If you live, work or frequently use the facilities aboard the air station, your privately owned vehicle must be registered properly at the Pass and Identification Office, Building 251, located at the main gate. At the time of registration, you will receive the appropriate decal per Air Station Order P5560.3D.

Registration will require:

  • A valid active duty, retired, dependent or civilian ID card.
  • Evidence of vehicle ownership and registration certificate.
  • A valid state driver’s license.
  • A valid safety inspection.
  • Proof of insurance meeting North Carolina minimum insurance levels for personal liability, per accident coverage, and for property damage liability.
  • (Military drivers 26 years old and under) Certificate of completion of a military safe driving course.
  • (Motorcycle and moped drivers) Certificate of completion of a motorcycle operators course.

The Pass and ID Office hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for holidays. Temporary and one-day visitor passes are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Main gate sentries will issue after-hour passes.

Air station speed limits: The station speed limit is 20 to 45 mph where posted. All government housing areas have a 15 or 20 mph speed limit, and parking lots have a 10 mph speed limit. When approaching or passing columns of troops in formation or other pedestrians on the road, the speed limit is 10 mph.

Seat belts: Wear them! It’s a DoD regulation and North Carolina law that seat belts will be worn in government and civilian vehicles on or off the air station by all vehicle occupants.

Bicycles: When you ride a bicycle on base, you must wear a certified bicycle helmet at all times. Although bikes are permitted on most areas of the base, they are restricted from Roosevelt Boulevard, which runs from the main gate through the base and into officer housing. Sidewalks and the Roosevelt bicycle path must be used along this road. Bicycle and pedestrian traffic are also prohibited from Slocum Road adjacent Alexander Drive to U.S. Highway 70.

Firearms registration: All firearms introduced aboard the installation must be registered. If you live on base, you must register any firearm you own at the Pass and ID Office. Firearms cannot be kept in the enlisted BEQ; however, they may be stored in your unit’s armory. Residents in other government housing may keep their registered firearms within their homes. SNCOs and officers living in the SNCO or Officer Transient Quarters/BEQ/BOQ may store properly registered weapons in their rooms.
