— The state Division of Motor Vehicles said its drivers license offices would reopen Wednesday morning after being knocked out Tuesday afternoon by a broken computer connection.

The connection to the division's central server failed, putting license applications and renewals on hold. Without that server that processes photos, DMV could not issue licenses or identification cards anywhere in the state.

Examiners need the central file to compare photographs being entered into the system with previous photographs of customers.
