Anchorage drivers looking for an alternative to state DMV offices now have one which might not have any additional cost, as the American Automobile Association began offering DMV services at its Midtown offices.

According to AAA spokeswoman Michelle Donati, starting Tuesday people can visit the office at 3565 Arctic Blvd. Suite 5, near Arctic’s intersection West 36th Avenue, from 8 a.m.  – an hour before DMV offices open – until 5 p.m. weekdays.

The office can handle a number of services passenger vehicle registration renewals, as well as ownership/title transfers, duplicate title requests and selected license plate requests. Motorists who have joined AAA won’t be charged any additional fees beyond those assessed by DMV, while non-members will pay a convenience fee of $20 to $30 per transaction.

“AAA has always been about providing value and convenience, and that’s exactly what the new services at our Anchorage office will do,” Michelle Donati, a spokeswoman for AAA, said Tuesday. “Our goals are similarly aligned with the DMV; we're a member service organization, which is why we won't be taking any transaction fees for these services from our members, and they're available to everyone in Alaska -- not just AAA members.”

Marla Thompson, DMV’s director, said the division was “happy to have AAA as our newest business partner” among 12 statewide offering vehicle-related services.
