UPDATE: MVC computers come back online after outage
TRENTON — Motor Vehicle Commission computers came back online Monday afternoon after an outage that started over the weekend
The commission's computers were back in service at its branch offices after 2 p.m. Business normally able to be completed on the MVC website was unaffected by the outage.
Techs worked all weekend to restore the state's IP, system which crashed because of a "system error," according to MVC spokeswoman Mairin Bellack, who said that other state systems were restored by Monday.
"However, the MVC system that processes payments is still being repaired," Balick said on Monday morning.
The state Division of Taxation in a message on their Twitter account said that they had "technical issues" with their online systems that lasted into Monday. In a follow up tweet at 1 p.m. the department said the issues had been resolved.
A New Jersey 101.5 listener reported that her daughter was able to take and pass her driver's test on Monday morning at the Toms River office. However, the staff was waiting for the computers to come back online in order to process her new license.
She returned the office after hearing the systems were back online and reported she and her daughter were "in and out" to get the new license.
Balick did not have information about what affect the outage had on other state offices. A spokeswoman for the state Office of Information Technology has not yet returned a message.
Also on Monday, the MVC was set to cut a ribbon on a new, modernized South Plainfield office, after shutting the prior office last year.
