HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Department of Motor Vehicles says it’s been unable to reach an agreement with one of Connecticut’s two regional automobile clubs to continue providing driver licensing services.

DMV Commissioner Michael Bzdyra (biz-DEER’-ah) announced Tuesday his agency and AAA Northeast, which serves Fairfield and New Haven counties, have reached an impasse.

The AAA franchise decided in October it would only provide licensing and ID car renewal services to its members and not the general public, prompting the governor to threaten legal action. It later agreed to continue providing the services until Dec. 31 and meet with DMV about a possible compromise.

Bzdyra says he hopes the franchise will reconsider DMV’s proposals. Meanwhile, DMV will explore other options for maintaining the services. AAA Allied will still renew licenses in the other counties.
