FAQ

Are there times when ExpressSOS may be unavailable?
 
Answer:

ExpressSOS will occasionally be down for maintenance. In addition, credit and debit card payments cannot be processed between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Sunday mornings because the software that processes electronic payments is off line at that time.

Databases outside the state's system for driver's license and state ID card transactions will also be unavailable at certain times, but this should only affect a small number of our web customers. The following table gives you the maintenance schedule for databases outside the state's system
