North Carolina DMV computers down again

- North Carolina DMV computers are down again Wednesday morning for unknown reasons, preventing customers from getting served at more than 100 driver license offices statewide.

A similar outage was first reported two days ago. 

DMV locations across the state are reportedly unable to perform any renewals or issue licenses for what they are calling 'a state-wide system problem.' 

Computers at the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles were first reported down on Monday, July 30. A software update over the weekend apparently caused problems with the DMV's customer address verification system. 

When a DMV employee entered a driver's address into the computer, the system would shut down, officials with the Department of Motor Vehicles said. 

The NC Department of Transportation released this statement Wednesday to FOX 46: 

"DMV is experiencing some sporadic networking issues this morning at a few driver license office locations affecting some services. DMV IT is currently assessing the issues and working on a solution."
