License services restored at Rhode Island DMV

West Bay

CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — The Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is once again able to conduct license and other credential transactions following a brief outage on Monday.

According to DMV spokesperson Paul Grimaldi, the outage stemmed from a communications system issue affecting one of its vendors, The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrator (AAMVA), which “acts a national clearinghouse for licensing data.”

Grimaldi said service was restored by about 2:30 p.m.

No other DMV services were affected by the outage.
