4th DMV Express Licensing Center Opens in North Haven

Posted on December 17, 2018 by admin


The fourth new DMV Express service center in 2018 opened on Friday, December 14 in North Haven with State Representative Dave Yaccarino, State Senator Len Fasano,  Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman,  DMV Commissioner Michael Bzdyra, and other state and local officials. The opening marks DMV’s continuing effort to improve customer services and provide more convenience for residents across the state. The licensing renewal center will offer appointments up to two months in advance, self-service information kiosks, and text and email messages for a better customer experience.

This state-of-the-art DMV Express center builds on the partnership with Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union. The new license and ID card renewal center is located at 117 Washington Avenue in the Washington Commons plaza, North Haven. In June DMV opened a similar center with Nutmeg in Milford. The other DMV Express centers are located in West Haven City Hall and in Stamford managed by The WorkPlace.

The North Haven DMV Express center will be open every Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Thursday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.  Hours could be extended in the future.

Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union will charge a convenience fee of $8.00 per DMV transaction. That fee will be waived for customers who are members of the credit union. The office will not process commercial driver licenses, licenses with endorsements/restrictions for public passengers, suspended driver’s licenses, and “Drive Only” license services.  Those services are available at DMV branch offices.

Last year, the DMV solicited requests-for-qualifications from third-party vendors interested in operating license and ID card renewal service centers. This was an effort to spur innovation and create a network of convenient offices in New Haven and Fairfield Counties to replace those no longer available in that region’s AAA Northeast offices.

In northern Connecticut, license renewals and other DMV services are offered through AAA Club Alliance, which has offices in Avon, Cromwell, Enfield, Manchester, Old Saybrook, Waterford, and West Hartford.
