LANSING (AP) – Michigan is offering a temporary system for handling online motor vehicle and watercraft registrations.
A link to the Online Renewal Service is posted on the Michigan Secretary of State’s website.
Officials say anyone having difficulty renewing vehicle tabs or watercraft registration on ExpressSOS.com is encouraged to try the Online Renewal Service. The Detroit Free Press reports the old website had been locking out some who tried to access services.
Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says in a statement her office is “committed to finding a permanent solution that meets our customers’ needs.”
The temporary system comes after Michigan last year terminated a multimillion-dollar contract with Hewlett-Packard.
HP has worked since 2005 to replace the computer system used at offices where vehicles are registered. The deadline was 2010.
