Glitch halts license process

But it’s not because drivers are flunking road tests after failing to parallel park. Rather, the software programming laminated licenses hasn’t worked in days.


Bureau offices across Ohio are experiencing difficulties distributing licenses, agency spokeswoman Lindsey Bohrer said. This would include the office located in Sandusky on Cleveland Road.


“It’s a statewide problem,” Bohrer said. “We have been experiencing some glitches in our system. Since Monday, we have been down a good portion of the day.


Since then, it’s been hit or miss” Motorists can still receive valid licenses in the form of paper certificates certified by state officials.


“In our worst-case scenario, we are handing out letters to them so people aren’t penalized if they get pulled over” she said. Bohrer said there’s no timeframe to fix the software. “We’re working on it to get it restored as soon as possible,” she said.
