More than 100 DMV offices remain closed due to computer failure

The outage is a reminder of how much we rely on technology and how susceptible these systems can be to problems.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles says that more than 100 field offices are still closed after a catastrophic computer failure.

The department said on its website Wednesday that it anticipates offices returning to normal operations throughout the morning.

DMV officials say crews rebuilt the system after the outage began Monday due to a hardware failure. Officials say the computers were not hacked or targeted.

At the Roseville DMV office, people were lined up well before the office opened at 9 a.m. because the DMV said things would be back to normal on Wednesday, but were upset that systems were not working when the office opened.

No signs were posted indicating that computers were not working, and Roseville officials couldn't say when things would be back to normal.
