WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Michael Bzdyra has sent a letter to the President of AAA Northeast, accusing the automobile club of breach of contract.

The DMV says AAA Northeast is in violation of a contract dating back to 2011.

In the letter, Bzdyra says the auto club did not provide 60 days notice to the DMV of the termination of their services, a condition of the contract.

This comes on the heels of Gov. Dannel Malloy threatening legal action after AAA Northeast’s decision to stop offering driver licensing services to residents who do not have a AAA membership.
