ALBANY The computer system for the state Department of Motor Vehicles has been fixed after a glitch Monday hindered the agency's ability to process paperwork.

DMV spokesman Pete Bucci said in a statement that the computers appeared to be working well Tuesday.

"The DMV computer system is back up and running. We will continue to monitor the system as we go through the day and volumes increase," Bucci said in a statement.

Bucci told the Associated Press on Monday that a system upgrade Sunday wasn't working adequately and slowed license and registration transactions for customers at the 35 offices run by the agency across the state.

The system is also used by county clerks' offices that process DMV records. The agency said it would work with any customers who missed filing deadlines because of the computer problems.
