Fairhaven AAA Branch to Offer RMV Services to Members
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles and AAA Northeast officially unveiled a new partnership Tuesday that brings select RMV services to the Fairhaven AAA branch.
Members of the automobile club will be offered services such as driver's license and ID renewals, duplicate licenses or IDs, registration renewals, duplicate registrations, duplicate titles, and registration transfers Monday through Saturday.
AAA Northeast Executive Vice President John Galvin said Saturday services offer a great option to busy members.
"We provide an opportunity for working families in communities throughout the Commonwealth to be able to take advantage of services on a Saturday, which we think is greatly beneficial to the members," Galvin said.
The RMV also expects the new option to AAA members will alleviate traffic passing through full-service branches.
"With the AAA members who take advantage of registry services at AAA offices, it enables those of us at the registry to help the customers who need to come to see us directly for service," said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Erin Deveney.
The Fairhaven Commons location is the 15th AAA office to offer such services, and both organizations believe on bringing the program to all branches.
For non-members, some relief may be on the way as Deveney acknowledged the city's current RMV will be moving to a more accessible location in the New Bedford Business Park beginning early next year.
