The State of Tennessee said an outage that prevented them from issuing driver licenses across the state has been repaired.

“Between 10 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. EST today, the network that connects motor vehicle agencies across the United States to each other and to various verification services experienced an outage. During this time, there was no ability to process messages that support transactions of driver licenses and motor vehicle titles. This outage prevented a number of motor vehicle agencies from issuing driver licenses and vehicle titles during that time. The network is operated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).”

At 1:40 p.m. the problem returned, preventing the state of Tennessee from issuing licenses.

"AAMVA’s Network return to service was momentary and the outage has resumed nationwide. AAMVA’s team is working diligently to resolve the issue(s). We will pass along an update soon. "

at 2:48 p.m. the AAMVA said all systems were back up. The cause of the issue remains under investigation.
