State DMV’s computer problems resolved

April 5, 2012


— Kansas is issuing driver's licenses and non-driver identification cards again after fixing a problem that crashed a Division of Vehicles computer system for two days.

Spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said Thursday that 111 driver's license offices across the state were back to normal operations, with no problems reported in issuing licenses and ID cards.

The problem was with an outside vendor's 8-year-old server, which kept the division from issuing licenses and ID cards Tuesday and Wednesday.

The division is undergoing a $40 million computer-system upgrade that will integrate driver's license records with vehicle title and registration data. The division has said that once the upgrade is completed, the outside vendor's older server will not be needed.

The driver's license offices serve about 13,000 people a week.

An eight-year-old server? We must be paying for the very best.

Kansas' Kris Kobach fixed it so the 666 won't appear in your driver's license number...oh, wait that's just the Topeka zip codes.
