UPDATE: Driver’s license computer system back up after second failure

OKLAHOMA CITY – For the second time in less than a month, officials say drivers had to wait to renew their driver’s licenses.

Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety announced on Tuesday that a computer hardware problem was causing the driver’s license system to be down at all driver’s license sites across the state.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and we are working with OMES and the vendor who supplies the hardware to fix the problem as soon as possible. It is currently unknown how long this process will take. Again, all driver license stations and all tag agencies are affected by this issue,” a release from DPS read.

By 11 a.m., officials with the agency said that the computer system had been repaired and all agencies appear to be fully functional.

As a result, all driver’s license offices and tag agencies will resume normal operations.

This is the second time in a month drivers have dealt with computer problems at tag agencies.

Late last month, DPS announced a power outage caused an issue with computer hardware, which affected the driver’s license system.
