    What to Know

    • Agency officials say the problems reported Monday are a "residual effect" of a statewide server error that caused the initial outage

    • It means the MVC computer system cannot process transaction online or in its offices across the state

    • Service was restored shortly before 1 p.m.; it had been out since 8 a.m.

    The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission's computers are out of service for the second time this month.

    Agency officials say the problems reported Monday are a "residual effect" of a statewide server error that caused the initial outage. It means the MVC computer system cannot process transaction online or in its offices across the state.

    Service was restored shortly before 1 p.m.; it had been out since 8 a.m.

    Further details on what caused the server problems have not been disclosed.

    The MVC has suffered computer problems before: the agency's 39 offices across the Garden State were hampered by similar issues in 2016.  Also that year, an I-Team investigation chronicled massive headaches for drivers.
