The Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles won’t be able to provide some services while it installs a new computer system during the first week of May.
The Kansas Department of Revenue says the new computer system will combine three old systems into one, providing more efficiency.
Because of the upgrade, state and county offices won’t issue driver’s licenses and identification cards, or process vehicle titles and registrations, from May 1 to 7. People who have licenses or registrations expiring in April or the first week of May are encouraged to renew before April 30.
The Garden City Telegram reports the transfer of 6.8 million vehicle registration records will begin April 30. The new system is expected to be ready for operation May 8.
