Use of a Central Motor Pool vehicle incurs a cost to the department based on the rates for state vehicles assigned through the NC Department of Administration. The Central Motor Pool charges $.05 per mile above the current rate assigned by the NC DOA.
Charges are incurred based on either a daily rate or a per-mile rate, whichever is greater. Daily rates are used when the average daily mileage is less than 60 miles per day.

The Central Motor Pool bills departments for state vehicle usage on a monthly basis. Charges are posted in the month following the scheduled travel. A notification of departmental charges is sent to each department before any charges are posted in order to check for discrepancies and to keep for their records.
If a department fails utilize a state vehicle for which they are scheduled or if the department cancels a reservation after the cancellation cut-off time period, then a fee may be incurred. Cancellations need to be made at least 24 hours before the Travel Packet is available for pickup.
If a vehicle reservation is canceled within the time period between the set cancellation cut-off and the first day of the scheduled travel, then a $10.00 Late Cancellation Fee may be assigned and charged to the department during the normal billing process.
If a vehicle is canceled on the first day of the scheduled travel or the vehicle is not picked up or cancellation notice given, then a fee based on the daily rate for the assigned vehicle may be assigned and charged to the department during the normal billing process.
