A few more OMV offices in the state have reopened since the cyber attack last week.

A few locations opened on Monday and Tuesday, several more locations has since reopened. Those include: Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Bossier, Breaux Bridge, Gonzales, Harvey, Houma, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Marksville, Monroe, Veterans, Pineville, Shreveport, Slidell, Thibodaux, Westwego.

More offices can be found here:

The public is asked to exercise patience and conduct only vital time sensitive OMV business during the limited regional openings. Non-critical personal OMV needs should be held until the system is fully stabilized and expanded to all field offices.

Additionally, the LSP Fingerprinting and Background Check and Concealed Handgun Permit offices will not be open to the public at this time.

Troopers will continue to exercise discretion when encountering recently expired driver's licenses and vehicle registrations during the limited regional openings. The Office of Motor Vehicles and the Department of Public Safety appreciate the public's patience and cooperation during this restoration process.
