IVIPS Will Shut Down on December 9, 2016

  • DOL is modernizing our outdated vehicle and vessels computer systems, including IVIPS. The IVIPS system will no longer be available as of December 9, 2016 at 5 p.m. The IVIPS system will change to E-Services Contracted Plate Search (CPS), and registered users can access the new system on December 12, 2016.
  • Important billing information: Searches conducted from December 1 – 9, 2016 in IVIPS will be added to your November bill. You'll receive your November bill after December 12. You'll receive a bill for searches conducted after December 12 in Contracted Plate Search in January.
  • In anticipation of this change, we strongly encourage you to create a new business License eXpress account. You may register for a new account as early as November 7, 2016, before the system goes live on December 12, 2016.
  • If you are a main account administrator, you will receive additional information through email, which contains a PIN number you’ll use to register for your new account. Once you establish your account, you will need to create new accounts for your authorized sub-account users.
  • If you are currently an authorized sub-account user, the main account administrator at your organization will establish your account for you once he or she has enrolled through early registration.
  • Support will be available! Contact the Drives Support Command Center after November 7, 2016: 360-664-9650 or DRIVEShelp@dol.wa.gov.
