Beach Driving Season Begins; New Traffic Pattern at the Point

The 2022-23 Beach Driving Season begins on Thursday, September 15 in Emerald Isle, and runs until April 30, 2023. There is a ten-day period around Easter where beach driving is not permitted.  

Please note, there is a new traffic at The Point this year. Watch this video with Chief of Police Michael Panzarella, as he reviews some beach driving tips and shows the new traffic pattern. 

You can apply for your beach driving permit online or in person at the Emerald Isle Police Department at 7500 Emerald Drive. You must watch a short video, then take a quiz and score at least an 80 percent. You will attach your results to your your beach driving permit application. You will receive a notification when your permit is available to pick up at the Police Department. 

If you have questions about beach driving, please contact the Police Department at 252-354-2021.
