System outage limits DMV services

commercial license renewal

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles will not offer Driver’s License services at customer service centers throughout the state today due to an external system outage.

Verizon is performing network maintenance which will effect the DMV’s ability to access the National Driver Register.

The DMV is required to check the federal NDR database before issuing a driver’s license, so all driver related transactions will be unavailable.

The DMV offices are still open for other services but will be unable to renew or replace a license, learners permit, CDL , or driver privilege card.

Online renewal services may be available during the outage but replacements of driver’s licenses will not be available.
