Can AAA do a VIN verification?

AAA can do a VIN verification provided the Member is also requesting a CA registration and/or title on the vehicle and is processing that transaction at a AAA NCNU branch. Contact your local branch before your visit for more information if you would like to have a VIN verification performed.

This service is not offered outside California.

Can AAA replace a lost license, renew my driver's license, and/or provide a REAL ID?

AAA cannot assist with driver’s license or ID services, including but not limited to driver’s license renewals, replacements, Real IDs and/or DMV printouts. These transactions must be handled at the DMV.

Can AAA transfer car titles on vehicles purchased from a dealership?

Our Nevada branches in Carson City, Las Vegas Aliante, Las Vegas Rainbow, Reno, and Sparks can transfer titles on vehicles that are purchased from a dealership. All branches in Alaska, California, and Utah can only transfer vehicles that are acquired from a private party.


I was amazed.

"I could take care of everything at one window, with one supercompetent human and no extra costs."

—Colin G., Alameda, CA

It was so convenient.

"I needed to put the pink slip for a van in my name, and the dealership guy had signed it wrong. The people at the AAA Capitol Mall Branch in Sacramento helped me get corrections from the dealership."

—Julie P., AAA Member, Rodeo, CA
