WATERBURY, Conn. (WCBS 880/ AP) – Connecticut’s Department of Motor Vehicles says a computer program is preventing it from making driver licenses, learner’s permits or state-issued identification cards.

The DMV said the vendor responsible for the system was working on the problem Thursday, but could not say when it would be repaired.

The malfunction also is preventing the DMV from administering written driving tests, and is affecting AAA offices that handle driver license renewals.

DMV officials say their branches are still open for other services, such as registering a motor vehicle, or taking the driving road test.
