I'm not a OBX local...but I vacation there often. The Corolla NC northern "end" of Route 12 leads to easy beach access. No permit required. To my knowledge no current access restrictions. Nice area with some shopping and places to stay. Our JK runs fine here...enjoy!
Southern access further down...say Hatteras area...to my recollection requires NPS permits and there are calendar restrictions.
As able...you might plan your route to include a ferry ride on the NC state ferry system...make your visit a loop...to include Hatteras and Ocracoke.
