TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas is issuing driver's licenses and
non-driver identification cards again after fixing a problem that
crashed a Division of Vehicles computer system for two days.

Spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said Thursday that 111 driver's
license offices across the state were back to normal operations,
with no problems reported in issuing licenses and ID cards.

The problem was with an outside vendor's 8-year-old server,
which kept the division from issuing licenses and ID cards Tuesday
and Wednesday.

The division is undergoing a $40 million computer-system upgrade
that will integrate driver's license records with vehicle title and
registration data. The division has said that once the upgrade is
completed, the outside vendor's older server will not be needed.

The driver's license offices serve about 13,000 people a week.
