They are not. According to an Insurance Journal article (here), NAMIC (the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, see their press release here) is opposing a program in Kansas which allows AAA to renew drivers licenses. Their argument: that AAA would have an unfair advantage in selling auto and homeowners insurance. Really? I suppose this is supported by the large numbers of insurance sales offices immediately outside all of the state motor vehicle offices. You would think that they have more important items to occupy their time.
