DMV Computer Issue Leads to Lines at Four Mile Run Office

The glitch came after a long holiday weekend — DMV offices have been closed since Thanksgiving.

Just after 8:30 a.m. — the office opened at 8 a.m. — a customer told ARLnow.com that some 150 people were waiting around as employees tried to figure out how to get the computers to work.

Luckily, the problem was resolved shortly thereafter.

“We had a brief issue this morning, but it was fixed a little before 9 a.m. and offices should be back up and running,” said Virginia DMV spokeswoman Brandy Brubaker.
