More Than 100 California DMV Offices Impacted by Major Computer Outage

More than 102 DMV offices throughout California are experiencing a major computer outage on Tuesday, according to Department of Motor Vehicles officials.

The system experienced a "catastrophic hardware failure" and has to be rebuilt, officials said in a press release. DMV staff and crews have been working to fix the issue since Monday night.

The DMV anticipates all the field offices will be fully functional by Wednesday morning.

Offices will continue to provide driving tests, make return appointments, help with paperwork and answer any customer’s questions. 

The DMV has not said what triggered the massive computer outage, but many drivers are still upset they have not been able to take care of their DMV-related business.

"They've just been turning people away and saying the systems are down statewide," DMV customer Edward Walker told KTLA. "It's pretty crazy."

Customers can still use the DMV's online services. Field offices affected by the outage are listed below.
