SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division says it's getting a computer update that should improve service for customers by reducing wait times in MVD field offices.
The new system will handle both driver's licenses and vehicle registrations. Separate systems now handle those functions, and MVD says the integration should shorten customer transactions by speeding up information retrieval.
MVD says implementation of the "Tapestry" system will occur in two in two phases. The first will replace the driver's license system, followed by replacement of the vehicle registration system.
According to MVD, the entire project is expected to be finished in the next three years at a cost of $40 million.
