HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Republican leader of the Connecticut House of Representatives says she wants the General Assembly to hold hearings into complaints that the Department of Motor Vehicles is wrongly suspending vehicle registrations.

House Minority Leader Themis Klarides (THEHM’-his KLEHR’-ih-dehs) said Wednesday that her office has fielded numerous complaints from angry motorists.

DMV spokesman William Seymour says the problem stems from the recent upgrade of the agency’s computer systems.

Seymour says a coding fix was installed Dec. 23 and is being monitored by DMV staff to ensure it is working.

He says if motorists can prove the suspension was in error, the DMV will remove the $200 fine.

The agency will also provide a letter for any court proceedings or fines that may arise from an erroneously suspended vehicle registration.
