CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia plans to speed up the process for motorists doing vehicle registrations and other transactions with the state.

Gov. Justice Jim Justice said Wednesday that the Division of Motor Vehicles will expand its internet portal services for residents, vehicle retailers, lenders and insurance carriers. It will enable customers to conduct all vehicle title and registration transactions remotely, reducing long processing times while reducing costs and errors.

Residents will be able to access and keep their vehicle titles online or on their smartphones.

"Improving West Virginian's experience at the DMV has been a priority of mine throughout my administration," Justice said in a statement.

No timetable was given on the completion of the project.
