TUCSON -The Motor Vehicle Divisions Tucson Regional Office is closed this week while workers train on a new computer system.
The regional office is only allowing vehicle inspections, which is causing some delays for other offices.
On Tuesday, wait times exceeded an hour at the MVD off Shannon and Ina around noon. Some customers said they would use the online service instead.
Douglas Nick of the Arizona Department of Transportation recommended customers to use third-party authorized dealers to cut down on the wait.
“While we recognize this is an inconvenience,” Nick said, “We understand there are options at least to people. We also suggest that if you can’t do the transaction online, if you could wait a couple of days until we do reopen, Tucson Regional might be in your best interest.”
Regular office hours for the regional office should resume on Monday.
