Delaware DMV Strongly Encouraging Customers To Use Website, Waiving Late Fees

In support of the State of Emergency issued by Governor Carney advising the public against gathering in large crowds, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is strongly encouraging customers who are in need of Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) services to utilize which offers more than 20 services online, including renewal of Delaware Driver License/ID, renewing vehicle registration, and changing your home address.

Also, to keep DMV Lobby crowds to a minimum DMV will immediately begin waiving late fees for vehicle registration and driver license renewals until further notice. The Department is also encouraging exclusive use of the drive-through services at all DMV locations statewide.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we do not want anyone to feel that they must visit one of our facilities in person at this time to avoid late fees,” said Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan.

To further protect customers and employees, all DMV locations have increased their cleaning and disinfecting efforts. For example; eye machines, Kiosks, and testing equipment are being disinfected after each in person customer interaction.

We are closely monitoring this rapidly evolving situation through Delaware’s Division of Public Health and the CDC to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information to guide our operations.

If you are feeling sick, please do not visit public facilities and avoid public transportation. For more information on the state’s response to the Coronavirus, visit
