HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut drivers can now skip the line at the DMV by checking in online from a laptop, smartphone or tablet computer.
The DMV last week launched a new online portal which enables customers to check in before heading to a local service office in person.
The services available for online check-in include registering a vehicle, obtaining a license or handicap parking permit, getting copies of records, requesting a duplicate title, and making changes to the name on a registration or license.
The site shows waiting times and allows customers to choose which office they want to visit. The DMV says the online times are within 10 minutes of the wait times generated by an automatic computer system in its local offices.
The wait-time link can be accessed at ct.gov/dmv.
