Operational Changes Coming for Delaware DMV


Dover – The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles will be implementing several operational changes beginning Tuesday, July 13,2021, per the Governor’s recent announcement that Delaware’s State of Emergency declaration will be lifted on that date.

Effective July 13, 2021:

-DMV buildings will return to full capacity. Further, face coverings recommendations will follow CDC guidance—while not required, all customers who have not been fully vaccinated are encouraged to continue wearing face coverings while at DMV.

-Driver license/vehicle registration suspensions for bad checks will resume, as will uninsured motorist customer notifications for any outstanding balance owed to DMV.

-Pre-COVID Class D road tests and counter eye exams will resume, with specific guidance in place from DPH to protect both customers and staff.

Please follow all instructions received from DMV and staff when utilizing either of these services. Beginning August 2, 2021, late fees will be assessed for any expired state-issued credential and vehicle transactions.

Select DMV transactions (including the renewal of state-issued credentials and vehicle registration) may be eligible to be completed online at myDMV.delaware.gov, or by using the self-serve kiosks onsite.
