More Maine AAA branches to offer license, ID renewal and replacement

By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — AAA members in southern and coastal parts of the state soon will be able to renew and replace their motor vehicle license and state identification cards at their local branches.

Beginning March 13, area residents of Ellsworth, Brunswick, Auburn, South Portland and Biddeford will be able to use these services at their local AAA branches, according to a AAA press release.

The Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles began partnering with AAA Northern New England to offer basic renewal and replacement options at select branch offices last year, according to AAA’s website.

Representatives from the bureau and AAA will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the program at 10 a.m. on Wednesday at the Bangor AAA branch, located at 339 Griffin Road. Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap will attend the event.

“Great customer service is a top priority for us, and this partnership with AAA Northern New England will help us meet that objective,” Dunlap said. “This arrangement will extend our presence through a private-sector mainstay that is recognized and trusted by the public at no additional cost to the citizen.”

The branches will only be able to do “basic” renewal and replacements, and will not be able to make changes to AAA member credentials, according to the press release.
