HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

On Thursday, Gov. Dannel Malloy said AAA Northeast committed to continuing to service to drivers until the end of its contract.

Earlier this month, the governor asked AAA to reconsider their decision to discontinue driver licensing services for non-members in some Connecticut towns. 

AAA Northeast has offered driver licensing services to non-members as well as AAA members in Connecticut since 2001. After learning about the service withdrawal, Malloy said he sent a letter to AAA Northeast President and CEO Mark A. Shaw.  

Several offices were not being impacted, however many offices in Fairfield and New Haven counties were affected.

On Thursday, Malloy issued a statement that said “We appreciate AAA Northeast’s willingness to join us at the table and discuss how to continue to serve the best interest of Connecticut drivers.  As a result of our recent discussion, AAA Northeast has committed to continuing to service to divers until the end of its current contract.  The continuation of this working partnership between AAA and the DMV will benefit both AAA members and non-members alike.  I look forward to our ongoing, future conversations regarding a longer-term arrangement.”

AAA Northeast President & CEO Mark Shaw said “Working together with legislators and state officials, AAA has agreed to serve all Connecticut drivers, beginning Monday October 18, 2016, and continuing through the end of the year while we discuss how the DMV partnership might be reshaped to meet the needs of both sides.”
