DENVER -- A statewide crash of the computer system forced Colorado driver's licenses offices to stop issuing documents for about two hours Friday morning.

The Division of Motor Vehicles said on its website the situation had been resolved at about 11:45 a.m. and normal operations resumed throughout the state.

"Driver license offices are currently experiencing computer issues. At this time no documents can be issued.  We are working to resolve the situation and apologize for any inconvenience," the original posting read.

The updated message read: "Driver license offices have returned to normal operation and are able to issue driver license and related documents. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Hundreds were in fact inconvenienced, like Ryan Hicks who just moved to Colorado.  He needs his license, “Moved here from Texas and I need a license.  So just wasted time.  Probably go, come back next week.”

Officials did not say what caused the issues.
