State Department of Motor Vehicle offices, including the one in Danbury, will be closed the second week of August for a major computer system upgrade.
Commissioner Andres Ayala says when the upgrade is complete, there will be a number of new online services available on the DMV website. He says the existing online registration renewal program will be enhanced. Compliance issues can be checked, registration certificates could be printed from home and registrations could also be cancelled online.
Residents will also be able to order vanity plates online.
The closure is from August 11th through 15th. DMV locations will open with full service the following Tuesday, August 18th.
Ayala says it involves a huge transfer of data. Over 40 million pieces of information will be moved.
Beginning August 11th, Governor Malloy has ordered that the expiration date of all driver’s licenses, ID cards or vehicle registrations be extended through October 10th, and renewals can be done without a late fee until that date.
