The Hollister Department of Motor Vehicles office is one of more than 100 statewide that has been impacted by what the DMV termed a "major computer outage on October 24, 2016 impacting offices around the state."
As of 10 a.m. Tuesday, the DMV reported that Hollister was still among the branches impacted by the outage. The local DMV is located at 80 Sally St. The 2:30 p.m. update showed that Hollister's DMV branch was still in the dark, computer-wise.
"Crews have been working all night to rebuild the system and get offices back up and running," the DMV said in a statement on its website. "The offices that are still down will continue providing drive tests, making return appointments, helping with paperwork, and answering customer’s questions. The department wants to remind customers that DMV online services are still available and apologizes for any inconvenience this issue has caused."
According to the Orange County Register, just 68 of the state's 173 DMV offices were not affected by what officials called a "catastrophic" hardware failure.
