DMV Issues New Process for Licenses, Other Photo ID's

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
 
Just when you thought you were learning to navigate the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles again, they are updating the process for licensing, issuance of ID cards and other photo-credentials.  I thought it important that you learn this sooner rather than later, as it will impact all of us. Please remember, I am just the messenger.   
 
Ready?  The Connecticut DMV will no longer issue driver's licenses, ID cards, or other credentials on-site at branch locations. At the end of May, a rolling phase-in of a new process will begin, by former AAA service areas, with the first phase-in occurring in the former Willimantic and Cromwell AAA service area.  Subsequent service areas will follow after each successful implementation.
 
The new process of acquiring or renewing a CT license, ID card or other credential will now include you receiving a 30-day written notice to renew, assuming DMV has your current mailing address.  Prior to expiration, you will need to visit one of  these locations for processing, but you will no longer leave the branch with your valid, permanent card.  Instead, it will arrive in the mail within 20 days of your visit.  At the visit, you will now be issued a temporary paper license or ID for use until the permanent one arrives in the mail.
 
This new system is part of Connecticut's central issuance program designed to reduce fraud.
 
Note: If your current license or ID card is still valid, there is no need to replace it with the new card until it expires.  
 
Please see below for details. Click here for PDF versions.
 
If you have any additional questions on the updated license renewal process, or any matter related to state government, I can always be reached at Nicole.Klarides-Ditria@housegop.ct.gov or by calling 860-240-8700. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
 
State Representative Nicole Klarides-Ditria
