The Idaho Transportation Department will open five DMV offices across the state as it works to fix a widespread computer problem. 

Today offices in Ada, Bannock, Canyon, Kootenai and Twin Falls counties will be open as ITD troubleshoots its computer issues.  All others will remain closed until further notice. 

The agency said on Tuesday as DMV's around the state opened and started issuing licenses computers started to slow down.  ITD eventually shut down all but the Ada and Canyon County DMV's.

At this point ITD says it isn't sure what is causing the computer problem. 

While those five DMV's will be open today ITD warns service is expected to be slow and suggests people avoid a trip to the DMV if possible. 

All other motor vehicle services, including titles and registration, will still be open to the public and aren't impacted by the computer problem.
