New computer system will cause DMV delays in May

April 16, 2012


— 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.

The comments today reminds me of an old joke...

Every person needs a spouse because sooner or later something bad happens that you cannot blame on the government.

And these people are going to run our health-insurance exchanges! Government union employees! "I'm sorry sir but the emergency room is closed while we upgrade our computer system. Please bleed outside on the sidewalk for the next 6 days. Sorry for the inconvenience." Thank you Gov. Brownback for turning down the unconstitutional Obamacare money for health-insurance exchanges.

Bet Brownback's pick of the litter will get paid for both the boondoggle and for fixing the boondoggle.

Whatever happened to setting up the "new" running in parallel with the "old" while verifying it works correctly then pulling the plug on the old? No loss of service AND verification it actually works as it should........

I heard a rumor that the printing function of this system sends unencrypted PCL print data across the internet to the respective DMV/county offices. If this is the case, this is a significant security risk to the information that is contained with your driving and vehicle registration information.

I thought this new system was to be online before the first of this year.. I am looking for the Kansas Department of Revenue to reduce there money by the amount of days late they are in getting the system up & running.. Will contact my Rep & Senator about the delays.. Stay cool & have a good day..
