DC DMV Back to Accepting Credit Cards After Internet Attack

A major cyberattack that has caused websites across the East Coast to go offline affected the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles.

The DC DMV said about 4 p.m. it could not accept credit card payments for driver and vehicle services transactions because of the attack. At 6 p.m., the department said it is now able to accept credit card payments.

Customers were told to use cash, checks or money orders at DMV service centers.

The DMV said the attack did not affect adjudication services and customers could still pay their parking, photo enforcement and moving violation tickets with credit cards.
