WETHERSFIELD – All Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices will be closed today, Tuesday, March 13, due to the winter storm. Driver licenses and vehicle registrations expiring today will be extended until tomorrow.
In addition, DMV has canceled all road skills tests for today, Tuesday, March 13, due to expected storm conditions. DMV is notifying customers that their scheduled tests are canceled and providing instructions for re-scheduling them.
Customers with a knowledge test appointment will also be notified and be given instructions on how to reschedule their tests.
AAA offices that offer DMV services (Avon, Cromwell, Enfield, Manchester, Old Saybrook, Waterford and West Hartford) will also be closed today due to the winter storm.
With the impending storm predicted to bring snow, drivers of commercial and passenger vehicles are reminded about the requirement to remove snow and ice from hoods, trunks and roofs or face fines and penalties. The law also calls for stiffer penalties when there’s personal or property damage from the flying elements.
Drivers are exempt from the fines when the snow, sleet and freezing rain begins or continues while the vehicle is traveling. Parked vehicles are also exempt from the required removal of ice and snow.
