Woonsocket Call - - REGION/OBITUARIES -

PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — The Rhode Is­land Divi­sion of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles says driver’s li­cense ser­vices are back up and run­ning af­ter a tech­ni­cal prob­lem was re­solved.

The DMV said Thurs­day morn­ing that tech­ni­cians work­ing overnight fixed the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem.

An agency spokesman said Wed­nes­day that a net­work con­nec­tion to a na­tional data cen­ter was sev­ered, pre­vent­ing the state from ac­cess­ing ver­i­fi­ca­tion sys­tems needed to is­sue li­censes.

A sim­i­lar is­sue caused an out­age at the end of April. The agency says that out­age caused prob­lems around the coun­try, but the new­est one was lim­ited to Rhode Is­land.

The DMV says all ser­vices, in­clud­ing li­cense trans­ac­tions, are now avail­able.
