DMV Computers Fixed, Tweets @CA_DMv

The California Department of Motor Vehicles hit a snag today when all of their computers went down early this morning. But they are back online.

The Department of Motor Vehicles has some issues with its computers early this morning but according to the department's Twitter feed, all is restored.

"All DMV services have been restored. Thank you for your patience," the DMV tweet at 12:19 p.m.

The issue began around 7:30 a.m. today when DMV's computers crashed.

SFGate.com reported that the phone service was still up and running but the DMV lost access to the Internet and to DMV's internal networks.

The cause, according to spokesperson Jan Mendoza, stemmed from overnight changes AT&T performed on routers that affected several state agencies.

Customers coming in with "complex transitions" will be rescheduled, Mendoza said. Those appointments where the customer might be able to fill out a form and the data could be entered later once systems are back up might still be accommodated on a case-by-case basis, Mendoza said.

The Concord DMV site posted this on its website: "DMV is currently experiencing technical difficulties affecting field offices and the department's Internet website. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience."

I don't mind lines... as long as there is a roller coaster at the end.
