The Idaho Transportation Department has closed driver’s licensing offices across the state today due to problems with the state’s Division of Motor Vehicle computer system.

The exceptions to the closures are the driver’s licensing offices in Ada and Canyon counties, a Transportation Department news release said. There is no estimate of when the offices will be reopened. Registration and titling services remain open across Idaho.

Transportation Department technicians have not determined the root cause of the system errors, the release said.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for the public’s patience as we work towards finding a solution,” said DMV Administrator Alberto Gonzalez. “ITD is devoting all available technology resources towards investigating the root of this problem. The department is working hand in hand with its driver’s license vendor, Gemalto, in this effort.”
