LANSING, Mich. — The Secretary of State experienced some issues with the National Driver Registry on Monday.

The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) released the following statement to Fox 47 regarding the outage:

From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. EST, the network that connects motor vehicle agencies across the United States to each other and to various verification services experienced an outage. During this outage, there was no ability to process messages that support transactions of driver licenses and motor vehicle titles. This prevented most states from issuing/renewing driver licenses and issuing vehicle titles during that time. The network is operated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). As of 2 p.m. EST, the network appears to be operational and stable. AAMVA continues to monitor the network and will conduct a full analysis to determine the root cause of the outage.

The Michigan Department of State also tweeted that the AAMVA network outage had been resolved and that driver's license-related transactions were available again in branch offices.

Driver's license-related transactions are also back up and running again at
