Utah Releases Groundbreaking Motor Vehicle and Enforcement System

SALT LAKE CITY – The State of Utah Department of Technology Services and the Utah State Tax Commission, in cooperation with Fast Enterprises, have released a groundbreaking motor vehicle system and motor vehicle enforcement system referred to as VADRS. The system has become a model to many other states for efficiency, organization, and success.

VADRS processes 2.5 million vehicle titles and registrations, 2,700 dealership and body shop licenses, and 12,000 sales person licenses annually. Through the online service, Utah residents and businesses can manage vehicles and MVED business licenses, make DMV payments, order personalized plates, renew disabled placards, and renew commercial fleets.

VADRS automated and simplified procedures for faster and more secure customer service and workload tracking. In addition, the system distributes multiple types of revenue and fees to hundreds of state and local funds. These services give residents and businesses more control over where and when they do business with the Motor Vehicle Division, are streamlined for easy use, and most processes require no registration. The new system includes 123 interfaces, which allow users to access motor vehicle records in a real time environment. Users benefiting from this instant access include the Utah Department of Public Safety, the Utah Department of Transportation, and Utah county governments.

Barry Conover, Utah State Tax Commission Director, said, “The VADRS team diligently implemented this revolutionized process and met each challenge with creativity and tenacity. This atmosphere of teamwork led to a leading edge program, bringing customer service to a higher standard, while reducing costs.”
