West Point driver’s license office closed until further notice

January 26, 2013

If your driver’s license is close to expiring, or you’re planning to get one for the first time, you’re going to have to get it somewhere besides West Point.
The office located by the 4-H Extension Service and the county jail has been closed until further notice.
Warren Strain, spokesperson for the Mississippi Highway Patrol said on Friday that “computer infrastructure” problems were the cause of the sudden closure.
“It has to do with computer wiring,” Strain said. “We have to temporarily close the station until it is replaced.”
Strain said that apparently the network wiring in the building was not adequate to support the amount of internet traffic it was receiving.
“Up until now, evidently it has been fine,” Strain said.
Strain added that since the building is not owned by the state, his office is not permitted to go in and replace the wiring.
Below is a list of alternate stations in the area one can obtain or renew a driver’s license.
