AAA is your neighborhood New York DMV

In compliance with the CDC and the Governor's orders, we would like to make you aware of the following before visiting an AAA branch:

  • We ask that only the member completing DMV vision service enter the AAA Office to limit the number of people in the office at one time.
  • If you or anyone in your household is sick, please do not visit the branch at this time.
  • Unless for medical reasons, face masks will be required to be worn while in the office. 
  • Please check the list of available registry services below prior to visiting an AAA branch. Registry services are state-specific and not all registry services are available at AAA branch offices.

AAA members can now get their vision tested for free at New York AAA branches.  No appointment needed! This allows you to take advantage of shorter lines and Saturday hours at select branches. After testing, you can submit payment online at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles’ website and receive your new license in the mail.

Members can also renew vehicle registrations, obtain duplicate registrations (including on Saturday until 2 p.m.) and receive their registration windshield stickers on the spot. Registration service is ONLY available at the Garden City and Smithtown branches.

Credit cards, cash and personal checks are accepted for registration. Please make checks payable to AAA Northeast.

You must be an AAA Member with a membership card in your name to conduct a registry transaction at AAA
