PREVIOUS (9/17): The Colorado Department of Revenue worked throughout Tuesday to restore DMV services to residents.

The state Division of Motor Vehicles says offices across the state were experiencing network problems and they were not able to issue driver's licenses, instruction permits and identification cards at their offices.

The department stated a severed fiber optic cable was at the root of the problem.

A temporary solution was discovered late Tuesday. A "temporary fiber connection" was put in place. Some officers were able to issue licenses and IDs. The department expects to have the connection completely restored by Wednesday morning.

"The Department of Revenue is working with vendors to resolve this issue as quickly as possible," the DMV said.

Some license services are still available on mydmv.colorado.gov. People can apply for a license, renew their license, change addresses, along with a number of other services.
