    The Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles says driver's license services are back up and running after a technical problem was resolved.

    The DMV said Thursday morning that technicians working overnight fixed the telecommunications system.

    An agency spokesman said Wednesday that a network connection to a national data center was severed, preventing the state from accessing verification systems needed to issue licenses.

    A similar issue caused an outage at the end of April. The agency says that outage caused problems around the country, but the newest one was limited to Rhode Island.
