(WAFB) - Keith Neal, Assistant Deputy Commissioner for the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) says an internet issue caused closures at all Louisiana offices Monday, Jan. 6 and still continues to impact some regional offices. Neal says the issue is not related to a recent cyber attack on the state that crippled government agencies.

Certain OMV locations were unable to issue or renew driver licenses. OMV locations were also unable to issue or reinstate vehicle registrations.

Neal says as of Wednesday, Jan. 8 most OMV offices have reopened, with the exception of a few regional offices that are still resolving issues with Cox and AT&T.
