Computer glitch hits Va's DMVs

By Washington Post editors

A computer glitch caused problems at all 74 Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles offices across the state Monday, according to the Virginia Politics blog.

Hundreds of people who came into receive a new license or renew a license were turned away between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Other transactions, such as decals or titles, were processed normally throughout the day.

The Virginia DMV was unable to access the National Driver Registry, a nationwide computer system used by DMVs across the country to check driver information against the databases of other states.

It's the second time in a week that Virginia has lost connection to National Driver Registry.
