Arizona MVD To Shut Down To Change To New Computer System
Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division will shut down for several days in order to upgrade to a new computer system.
The state Department of Transportation announced Monday that the shutdown is scheduled to occur Friday at 5 p.m. and last till April 21. For that period, there will be no services available including driver’s license and car registration renewals. The agency says this will also affect authorized third-party service providers and ServiceArizona.com. According to transportation officials, the timing of the disruption to service is in part because the coronavirus pandemic has already resulted in fewer visits to MVD offices.
