Secretary of State to Update Computer System President’s Day Weekend
During the Presidents Day weekend closure, the Secretary of State will replace the outdated vehicle records system.
The new Customer and Automotive Records System will reportedly enhance services for Michigan residents.
It will add new online options, improve existing online and kiosk services, and give staff a more efficient tool to look up vehicle information and process transactions.
CARS also updates records in real time and replaces 1960s legacy mainframe technology.
During the upgrade to the CARS platform, some services will be unavailable from 5 p.m. Friday, February 15th, until 9 a.m. Tuesday, February 19th.
And for a few weeks following the launch, as staff gets accustomed to the new computer system, services in offices may take longer.
