Last month, you’ll remember, privately-owned (but Senate-appointed) tag agents registered their displeasure with the state’s plan to process orders over the Web, which might put a dent in their business model.
Displeasure duly noted, the Oklahoma Tax Commission has now opened up that Web site and bestowed upon it the incredibly-obvious acronym CARS, which stands for “Convenient Auto Renewal System.”
Note that word “renewal.” New registrations can’t go through the Web. And other functions handled by tag agents the issuance of a driver’s license, for one are still going to be handled by tag agents. Still, this counts as progress of a sort, even if it’s probably not going to change my particular habits.
