LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle locations are not taking online appointments due to a delay in a vendor switch, according to a representative. 

Spokesperson Kevin Malone said the contract for the vendor that managed the DMV's online appointments expired on Dec. 31. The new vendor was delayed in changing over the system, Malone said.

The pilot system was rolled out in Reno last week, Malone said, and is expected to be in the Las Vegas area "hopefully no later" than the end of February. 

The new system will work the same, he said, but with more appointments available.

In the meantime, the DMV is running off the take-a-number system, but Malone said wait times have been substantially lower, which is typical this time of year.

He said the department hasn't gotten many complaints about the appointment system being unavailable. 

Malone urged those going to the DMV to check on the website first, as an appointment isn't always necessary. To visit the DMV's website, click here
