Ohio BMV officials say it issues are resolved and systems are up and running


After a rough start to the day, state officials say all of BMV’s IT issues have been resolved and their systems are operating as usual.

Computer problems crippled some local offices of the Bureau of Motor Vehicle on Tuesday. While many offices were able to process transactions, albeit more slowly, an office in Kenny Road hung a sign that read “Our computer is currently offline.”

He went on to say, “We cannot process any driver’s license, ID card or vehicle registration at this time.”

A Tuesday tweet from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles read, “The BMV is experiencing system issues that could impact transactions, causing them to run slower than normal. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Customers are advised to call ahead before visiting your local office.

The state has offered a 14-day grace period for drivers with expired labels until the computer issue is resolved.

A BMV spokesperson told WBNS: “We were able to take care of customers in most cases, it only slows down transaction times. IT is working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. “
