About the DMV Commissioner

DMV Deputy Commissioner Guerrera

Commissioner Tony Guerrera

A lifelong resident of Connecticut, DMV Commissioner Guerrera brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to DMV. Prior to joining the agency, he served in the state legislature for 20 years, represented the 29th district and was the long-time Co-Chair of the Legislature’s Transportation Committee while also being a self-employed local business owner.

During his time as Transportation Committee Co-Chair, he championed sweeping changes to the state’s teen driving laws in 2008 that led to dramatic reductions in fatal crashes involving this age group.  The changes included a required two-hour safety information class for both parents and teens, improved training requirements, extended curfew and passenger restrictions and other requirements aimed to increase safety among teen drivers. Prior to his service in the General Assembly, he was Mayor of Rocky Hill and served on the town council.
