Kansas Motor Vehicles offices closed this week


From The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. — Anyone who has business with the Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles needs to get it done on Monday.

After Monday, all DMV offices in Kansas will be closed for the rest of the week while the state installs a new $4 million computer system and employees learn how to use it.

Kansas Department of Revenue officials say the one week of disruption will be worth it, promising that the new system will make filing paperwork much more efficient.

Online voter registration in Kansas also will be unavailable starting at 7 p.m. Monday through May 7. That is part of the same modernization project.
