What are AAA offices’ COVID policies?

In compliance with the Center for Disease Control and the New York Governor’s orders, all New York AAA branch locations have implemented the following policies:

  • Only the one member completing the DMV service can enter the AAA branch office.
  • If you or anyone in your house is sick, we ask you not to make a reservation, or cancel your reservation if you already have one.
  • Face masks are required to be worn while inside the office. You will be allowed to momentarily remove the face mask while a license photo is taken, if one is needed. (Face coverings should not be worn by anyone whose health would be harmed from wearing a face cover, including children under the age of two.)

      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.

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

        • Andrew S.

          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.

    • Andrew S.

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

    • Andrew S.

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