AAA stores with Department of Motor Vehicle licensing centers have reopened to the public and residents are now recommended to make an appointment for services.
AAA recommends people make an appointment ahead of time, but said they will do their best to accommodate anyone who does not have access. Accommodations may include helping anyone who does not have internet access during an available time slot that day or by helping them set up an appointment for a different day.
“The appointment system allows AAA to provide licensing services for the greatest number of people, while complying with COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions that limit store capacity and interpersonal contact. The process for making an appointment online is extremely user-friendly and, to date, we have found that it is a winning solution for all involved” said spokesperson for AAA in Greater Hartford Amy Parmenter.
The DMV reminds residents that there is a 180-day extension period to residents with expiring driver's licenses, ID cards and learner's permits. If your credentials expire between March 10, 2020, and June 30, 2020, you are automatically covered by the extension, according to AAA.
Licensing services available at AAA locations include renewals for "Real ID" and standard license renewals, non-driver ID renewals and license duplicates, AAA said.
There are licensing services in Avon, Cromwell, Enfield, Manchester, Old Saybrook, Southington, Waterford and West Hartford provided by AAA.
