Three Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles offices remain closed because of outages and other problems following the Oct. 29 Winter Storm Alfred. Those three are Enfield, New Britain and Winsted. (Click here to find others offices for DMV services.)
The DMV also issued a press release announcing it is extending some deadlines for renewing driver’s licenses, non-driver ID cards, vehicle registrations and other credentials expiring Oct. 29 through Nov. 10, 2011.
These remain valid during that time period, but must be renewed by Nov. 10.
Law enforcement will be notified about these extensions.
These extensions include the time needed to comply with emissions inspections. Customers are advised to check with their garage to see if they are currently conducting emissions testing.
In addition, late fees for both expiring credentials and emissions tests will be waived during this period only through Thursday, Nov. 10. (Late-fee waivers do not cover expirations prior to Oct. 29.)
All late fees are once again effective as of Friday, Nov. 11.
The CT DMV also reports other service-related issues due to last weekend’s storm:
- As of Tuesday evening (Nov. 1), DMV’s Wethersfield office was on limited power and not accessible to disabled people due to a non-functioning elevator.
- DMV’s call center cannot accept telephone calls for in-person assistance, but recorded automated information is available. Customers can call 860-263-5700 (within Hartford area or outside Connecticut) or 1-800-842-8222 (elsewhere in Connecticut) or visit http://ct.gov/dmv
- In the Wethersfield DMV office only, all road tests scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 2, have been cancelled. Customers can reschedule road tests by contacting DMV’s call center once it has returned to full operation. (see above note)
- AAA’s Enfield and Plainville locations will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 2, and therefore will not be providing driver’s license and non-driver ID card renewal service.
