Cyberattack attempt disrupts La. Office of Motor Vehicles
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana drivers trying to get license renewals, car registrations and other services through the Office of Motor Vehicles will have to keep waiting. OMV offices around the state are shuttered and no reopening date has been immediately set.
An attempted cyberattack that disrupted state servers on Monday has caused larger problems at the Office of Motor Vehicles than at most other state agencies.
Plans to reopen OMV locations keep getting pushed back, as the state’s technology services office continues its work to restore network and online services.
The Office of Motor Vehicles issued a statement Wednesday that gave no estimate for opening its locations around Louisiana. The agency said it will announce openings as electronic services are restored, tested and ready for use.
