WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) —The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles says vehicle owners who didn’t receive registration renewal notices due to a computer glitch will have until Sept. 30 to get the renewal done.
Agency officials announced Friday that 8,340 vehicle owners missed their renewal deadlines last February because of the error. While the registrations were flagged for renewal in the department’s computer system, the notices were never printed and sent.
The DMV says the mistake was discovered during an ongoing review of its troubled computer upgrade, launched last summer.
The department says it’s now sending out revised renewal notices. Meanwhile, drivers are being urged to carry the notice in their vehicle to show police, if stopped.
The agency originally said owners had 30 days to get their vehicle renewals completed.
