Processing driver’s licenses, vehicle registrations and other services were briefly unavailable the morning of June 1 when the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles reported a statewide computer outage.
It was unclear what caused the DMV’s computers to go down around 9:50 a.m., spokesman Kevin Malone said. The system was restored by 10:10 a.m., but service was “spotty” for some time.
When DMV computers are unable to operate, workers are able to process only movement permits and distribute advisory forms and brochures, Malone said.
“We tell people that they can leave or wait for the computers to come back on,” Malone said. “It’s their option.”
