The Louisiana OMV will remain closed on Friday following cyber attacks this week.

Governor Edwards in a press conference stated that the offices will be closed until Monday November 25, 2019.

The problem Monday disrupted business operations and online services across state agencies.

Gov. John Bel Edwards' office says some services started to come back online Monday afternoon but would take several days to fully restore all websites and online operations.

Troopers will be exercising discretion when encountering recently expired driver's licenses and vehicle registrations. In addition, vehicles impounded by State Police for lack of insurance coverage will be able to show proof of insurance at local LSP Troop locations. Upon insurance verification, impounded vehicles will be issued a release from private storage facilities. Troop locations across the state can be found at http://www.lsp.org/troops.html
