All but one California Department of Motor Vehicles office in the central San Joaquin Valley was back online by 11 a.m. Thursday in the wake of a shutdown of the system on Monday, the DMV announced.
The major computer failure on Monday has stymied motorists who want to get paperwork handled at field offices throughout the state.
The Fresno North and Clovis offices were running at the start of the business day, a spokeswoman with DMV said. The Madera and Porterville offices came off the list by 11 a.m.
The Fresno Commercial Driving Test Center on North Avenue in southwest Fresno was back up by 3:30 p.m.
The Tulare office remained on the short list, able to process driver’s license and identification card business only (no vehicle registration).
DMV announced Thursday that vehicle owners affected by the outage can ask for a waiver of penalties on a registration by completing a Statement of Facts (REG 256) or writing a letter explaining the reason for being late.
