Exclamation WA DoL drama

If you have a dual registered vehicle (ORV and street plates), be aware that the DoL has implemented a new computer system.

It appears as though every dual registered vehicle has had either one or both of their registrations canceled erroneously.

I was unable to renew one of my bikes on line and was instructed to visit a sub-agency in person. A lot of time was spent with staff on the phone to the DoL in Olympia.

The only way they could figure out how to fix it was to issue a new title to the vehicle and link new registrations to the new title. No charge for the new title Ė how kind of them.

After about 45 minutes I left with fresh tabs in hand, but need to repeat this at least two more times.

At least the girl at Bevís on Evergreen in Everett said to just drop of the paperwork for the next ones and come back in a couple of days instead of spending quality time standing at the counter.

Keep me up to speed on this. I'm working on setting up a meeting with the Director of DOL on some other issues, and I can always add to the agenda.

tabs

How recent was this enacted? I just got tabs last month but maybe my ds is void now?

Nothing was "enacted", just a software "improvement" that didn't know how to deal with multiple registrations linked to the same title so it just deleted them.

Which can be even more problematic, as most of the software upgrades are done under a service contract. This may require an addendum to the contract, which translates to more money, to solve the issue.
