Gov. Dannel Malloy and Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Commissioner Michael Bzdyra announced in a press release last week that a new DMV Express Center has opened in Southington, providing customers with a convenient location to renew driver’s licenses and identification cards.
Located at 755 Queen St., the office is operated through a partnership with AAA Allied Group. It is the fifth DMV Express Center to open this year as a part of the agency’s continuing effort to improve customer service and provide more convenience for residents across the state.
“This the fifth DMV office to open across the state this year as a part of our ongoing efforts to provide more convenience for the residents of our state,” Governor Malloy said in a press release. “This public-private partnership is serving as a model for how we can work together to make sure Connecticut residents receive the best possible services.”
The Southington office is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“DMV has a very strong, longstanding relationship with AAA Club Allied Group,” Commissioner Michael Bzdyra said in a press release. “This latest DMV Express gives customers another convenient option to renew driver’s licenses, while at the same time reducing the strain on DMV locations in the area. The partnership is a testament to a great working partnership that offers innovation to better serve Connecticut residents.”
The other DMV Express Centers that recently opened include locations in: Milford and North Haven through a partnership with Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union; in West Haven through a partnership with the city’s chamber of commerce; and in Stamford through a partnership with The WorkPlace.
