TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles remains unable to issue new driver’s licenses or non-driver identification cards because of persistent computer problems.
Spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda says Wednesday that problems with a vendor’s server brought down the system at all 111 driver’s license offices statewide. She says the state will continue to issue 15-day extension slips for licenses and ID cards set to expire between March 30 and April 6.
The offices receive about 13,000 visitors a week. The division is in the midst of a $40 million computer upgrade that will integrate driver’s license records with vehicle title and registration data.
Koranda said technicians were still working on repairs to the malfunctioning computer server.
