Computer Problems Persist At Oklahoma Driver License System
OKLAHOMA CITY - A statewide computer problem that knocked the state's driver license system offline was said to be back up and running Wednesday morning, but there have been additional problems.
Due to computer issue, DPS still can not issue new driver licenses or ID cards, but they can issue replacement and renewal licenses and IDs.
At 10:40 a.m., the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety updated their announcement:
At the current time, driver license offices across the state are not able to issue new driver licenses or ID cards but can issue replacement and renewal licenses and IDs. Tag agencies are not affected, as they only issue replacement driver licenses and IDs. The Department of Public Safety continues to work with the vendor to completely restore the system as soon as possible.
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety believed problems were solved when they made the first announcement just after 8 a.m.
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety announces that the computer system serving statewide driver license and tag agent offices has been repaired and all agencies appear to be fully functional. All driver license offices and tag agencies will resume normal operations today. DPS and vendor technicians will be monitoring the system in case of any additional problems.
The DPS says the problem started when storms blew through the state over the weekend causing a major outage.
