DMV offices, including some in Charlotte, reopened after widespread internet issues

The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles offices in Charlotte and other parts of the state have re-opened after an internet outage impacted 35 offices, officials said Thursday.

AT&T, the DMV’s internet provider, reported the outage at 12:15 pm Wednesday, according to a news release by the NC Department of Transportation. The outage affected the Charlotte area, the southern Triad, and portions of the eastern mountains and foothills in the state.

Repairs were completed overnight and service was restored, NCDOT said.

AT&T officials were unsure of what caused the outage, NCDOT said.

Appointments affected by the outage will be rescheduled.
