HARTFORD, Conn. — The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles has notified one of two regional automobile clubs in Connecticut that it’s in default of a contract to provide driver licensing services to the general public.

Wednesday’s letter from DMV to AAA Northeast’s president demands the club immediately resume services to non-members. DMV Commissioner Michael Bzdyra (biz-DEER’-ah) says if the club doesn’t take action by Oct. 14, the state agency will “pursue all legal remedies,” including action to recover any damages.

AAA Northeast stopped serving non-members on Monday at its eight offices in Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties.

Bzdyra tells The Associated Press AAA Northeast didn’t provide DMV with a written 60-day notice to terminate the contract, calling it a “sudden, rash decision.”

AAA Northeast says it “reserves comment” on any legal notification.
