Q: Germany - North Carolina Driving License Reciprocity

I have a German driving license, and everywhere on the internet I find that North Carolina does have a partial reciprocity with Germany, meaning I need to pass a Written Test to get a NC Driver's License but I don't need to do a Road Test. Today at the DMV they said this is not true and I must do the Road Test. Who is wrong?

A: Likely the DMV, you can try going to a different DMV location and hope they are more understanding but it will likely be easiest to take both tests.
