AAA reopens to handle certain DMV transactions

NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (WLNE) —

AAA offices reopened Monday morning for in-person services. Drivers can schedule appointments for service at every branch except Providence.

“We had a backlog of hundreds of customers who had been looking to make an appointment,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior VP of Public Affairs at AAA Northeast.  “They were all called last week and will quietly and steadily be taken care of.”

Rhode Island’s satellite DMV locations all remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The only DMV currently operating is the Cranston branch by appointment only.

Governor Gina Raimodo says she hopes to reopen a satellite DMV location at some point near the end of Phase-1 of reopening the state.

All DMV transactions at AAA will be conducted under CDC guidelines, adhering to social distance requirements and limiting the number of people allowed inside the offices at one time.

Drivers whose license or registration expired during the pandemic have an extra 90 days to renew it.
