A ransomware attack crippled the Louisiana Office Of Motor Vehicles and many other state government agencies last week.  Good news, some OMV offices are back open today.

The eight regional offices that are reopening include:

  • Baton Rouge - 7701 Independence Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA 70806
  • New Orleans - 100 Veterans Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70124
  • Shreveport - 9310 Normandie Drive, Shreveport, LA 71118
  • Lake Charles - 951 Main Street, Lake Charles, LA 70615
  • Alexandria - 5602 Coliseum Boulevard, Alexandria, LA 71303
  • Monroe - 5171 Northeast Road, Monroe, LA 71203
  • Lafayette - 3241 N.W. Evangeline Thruway, Lafayette, LA 70507
  • Thibodaux - 1424 Tiger Drive, Thibodaux, LA 70301

KPLC is reporting that State officials are asking that residents only come to an OMV location to handle “vital time-sensitive OMV business” at this time. They also said that “non-critical personal OMV needs should be held until the system is fully stabilized and expanded to all field offices.”
