Driver’s license issues cause headaches

DENVER -- The driver's license system wasn't working on Monday morning at the Department of Motor Vehicles across the sate.

On an average day in Colorado, about 6,500 people will visit DMV offices to get a permit, driver's license or a state-issued ID. All of which requires a photo ID.

According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, the vendor that supplies the state with the software and cameras to make this happen went kaput.

Since 10 a.m. Monday, all 35 driver's license locations in the state were affected.

The system went back online about 2 p.m., which made for happy customers.

“I don't think it was much trouble for me at all. I mean it was a little bit off schedule for me personally but it was taken care of," said one visitor.

The problem did not affect the online operations.
