The lines at DMV just got shorter-because you no longer have to stand in them to renew your Delaware drivers license or state id card.
DOVER (DE): The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announces it is now offering online driver license and ID card renewals. DMV customers needing to renew their Delaware driver license or ID card may now do so in just a few minutes at their convenience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In September, Governor John Carney signed House Bill 146 into law which removed the requirement for signatures to be in pen and ink when provided for a driver license, identification card, or registration application processes. With the removal of this provision, the DMV is now able to develop more efficient means of serving customers and expand online services.
Customers over the age of 18, with a valid Class D driver license or ID card within six months of expiration, may now easily renew online whenever and wherever they want. Access to this and many more online services is via a customer’s secure MyDMV account easily created on the https://www.dmv.de.gov/ website. This new and exciting process will create a temporary paper driver license or ID card to be printed at home with a new card that will be mailed to the customer within two weeks of the online process. The new online renewed documents will use the most recent photo taken at the DMV and will cost the same as a traditional DMV visit. Online renewal is not available for holders of commercial driver licenses, graduated driver licenses, or to persons who utilized the self-service kiosk at their last DMV visit. Anyone who has lost driving privileges cannot renew online until satisfying all requirements with DMV.
“Allowing residents with a current license or identification card to complete the renewal process online when it works for their schedule is another great example of how we are working to make our services more convenient and efficient across state government,” said Governor John Carney.
“Our DMV continues to expand its services to ensure that we are serving our customers in a manner that is modern and most convenient for them. I frequently hear from satisfied customers which is a great testament to our employees which is why Delaware has the best DMV in the country!” offered Secretary of Transportation Jennifer Cohan.
DMV Director Scott Vien added, “The Delaware DMV is providing our customers with even more flexibility and convenience to process their transactions, and this service adds to our many online offerings which include renewing vehicle registrations, creating/updating a next of kin registry, registering for motorcycle training courses, scheduling road tests, and ordering vanity or specialty license plates.”
The Delaware DMV serves a customer base of more than 812,000 license and identification holders.
