Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and current and anticipated staffing shortages, customers who require the services of the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) are strongly encouraged to use the myDMV online portal (mydmv .delaware.gov), which offers more than 20 services, including Delaware Driver’s License/ID Card Renewal, Vehicle Registration Renewal, and Home Address Change. The division also encourages exclusive use of drive-thru at DMV locations statewide.

In an effort to reduce capacity inside the DMV halls, a text messaging notification feature will be implemented beginning Tuesday, January 4. With this feature, DMV customers will be able to wait in their vehicles until a text message prompts them in the lobby when it’s their turn to be served.

In addition, all late fees for vehicle registration and driver’s license renewals will again be waived until further notice. Individuals are encouraged to wait until February if they need in-person renewals.

Customers yet to visit a DMV facility should expect longer than usual wait times.

To further protect customers and employees, all DMV locations continue to increase cleaning and disinfection efforts, as well as implement additional precautionary measures. As a reminder, all customers visiting a DMV location must always wear a mask while inside the establishment.
