Our MVR vendor has been informed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) that their offices will remain closed and manual MVR orders will not be processed until further notice.
As a result of this open-ended shut down and the ongoing risk of relying on manual order processing in Pennsylvania, our MVR vendor is eliminating manual processing of PA MVRs and we must move to real-time electronic records. This change is effective immediately. We are committed to offering support for every client to enable a smooth transition and superior service for MVR processing.
This is a positive change that will result in reduced order processing time, elimination of manual paperwork and greater security in the delivery of these critical records. Client Services representatives will reach out to clients directly with instructions on the PA requirements for setting up electronic records.
