20 Thoughts on “AAA DMV Services Available Near You

  1. Does AAA provide photo changes with license renewals for someone who lost a lot of weight and no longer looks anything like current license photo?

    1. Hi Kelly, thanks for the question. Yes, you have the option of taking a new photo with a renewal. If you upgrade to Real/Enhanced ID, a new photo is required.

  2. With COVID, can license plates be turned in at ANY AAA office, or is this still not a service provided since May 2021??

    1. Hi Conrad, thanks for inquiring. We currently have one more approval to pass with the State of NY in order to begin accepting registration/plate cancelations. Once approved we will announce the service. We hope to have it in place by 12/1/21. You can check AAA.com for further updates on this service, and other new services coming soon.

    1. Hi John, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, we can’t quote a price. It all depends on vehicle weight, expiration month, title, sales tax fees, etc. Fee information can be found on the DMV website for these transactions.

  3. Hi I scheduled my son who will be turning 21 for his license renewal and upgrade to enhanced license when he renews. I’m assuming this can be done at aaa and is considered one transaction

  4. Hello,

    The above is a bit confusing RE: changing your name as it seems under both offered/not offered. Are you able to process an enhanced ID last name change with appropriate social security card documentation?

    Thanks for the help!
    Lauren

    1. Hi Lauren, thanks for reaching out and apologies for any confusion. Yes, AAA branches in NY can process license name changes. You can find the necessary documentation here.

    1. Sheila, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, this is not a transaction that can be completed at a AAA branch at this time.

    1. Hi Frank, thanks for the question. As long as your wife is also a AAA member, yes you can make an appointment for her.

    1. Hi Yui, thanks for reaching out. If the dependent is under the age of 18 we can process for them as they are a dependent in the same household. If they are 18 or older, however, they need a AAA membership.

      1. Can my Elderly Mother convert her drivers license which is still valid to a non drivers ID at a AAA office ?

        1. Hi Paul, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, at this time we’re unable to convert a driver’s license to a state ID. This will have to be done through the DMV.
