NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The drivers license computer system for the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles is down statewide.

Workers discovered the outage as offices opened Wednesday. Office of Motor Vehicles commissioner Karen St. Germain told The Associated Press in a Wednesday midday interview that it is unlikely the problem will be corrected before the usual 4 p.m. closing time at the 79 offices around the state.

The office’s website says vehicle registration transactions can be completed but driver’s license transactions, including reinstatements and renewals, cannot be completed.

St. Germain says the state Office of Technology Services is working on the problem. She said updates would be posted on the office’s Facebook page.
