New DMV Protocol: No Licenses Issued on Site

The Dept of Motor Vehicles and AAA locations will no longer issue driver’s licenses on site.

Beginning this spring, people looking to acquire or renew their Connecticut license will go to one of these locations for processing, but will receive their new licenses in the mail within 20 days.

This new system is part of Connecticut’s central issuance program designed to reduce the occurrence of fraud. Temporary paper licenses will be issued at the locations for use until permanent ones arrive in the mail.

If your current ID card is still valid, there is no need to replace it with the new card until it expires.
