TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A computer problem had Kansas Drivers License stations shut down most of the day Friday.
Revenue Department Spokesperson Jeannine Koranda says the state worked with the vendor to identify and fix the problem. She said the system was back up and running and the offices reopened around 3:30 pm Friday.
Koranda said the problem is not related to the $40 million upgrade that had drivers license and motor vehicle offices closed the first week of May. Since the motor vehicle offices reopened, county officials report glitches with the system that are creating long lines. Shawnee County stopped allowing more people in line at noon Friday. Johnson County has cut off its line as early as 11 am some days.
Koranda says the drivers license portion of the system has not been upgraded yet. The new system will integrate drivers license records and vehicle title and registration data.
Drivers license stations are regularly scheduled to be closed Mondays.
