Indiana has Y2K problems with licenses, registrations

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana residents who got a driver's license this week will have to get a new one because of a Y2K-related computer glitch, state officials said Tuesday.

The licenses were printed with five-year expiration dates instead of four years.

"It really is a minor problem," said Bureau of Motor Vehicles spokesman Alvin Hayes. "We're talking about a limited number of driver's licenses."

He didn't have an exact number and said the problem should be corrected soon.

Another minor computer problem this week at the BMV involved vehicle registration. Some registrations had to be processed manually instead of by computer because of an apparent Y2K-related problem, Hayes said. That problem was discovered late Monday and fixed Tuesday morning, state officials said.
