About DMV Locations

The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is a state agency that provides services for vehicles, drivers, transportation, and toll operations. The DMV has four locations in the state and three additional facilities specifically for toll operations. All offices are open Wednesdays from 12pm to 8pm and from 8am to 4:30pm all other weekdays.

Vehicle services offered through the DMV include inspections, registration and titling, data management, licensing for commercial and non-commercial vehicles, and uninsured motorist audits. Driver Services handles the issuance of driver's licenses and permits. The state follows graduated driver's licensing laws for drivers under the age of 18. You can also obtain a commercial driver license (CDL) through this division.

The Delaware DMV offers federally compliant driver's licenses and identification cards, which provide stronger security than earlier licenses. If your current license was issued before this change, you will need to bring in all of your documentation again. However, you will only need to do this once. All applicants for a driver's license or state ID must show valid proof of identification and Delaware residency, provide a Social Security Number, and pay a fee for the license.

Drivers between 16 and 18 can apply for a Level One Learner's Permit. They must complete a driver's education course and pass a vision screening, a written exam, and a road test. Minors also need to have an approved sponsor sign their application for a license. As long as the driver remains in good standing, the permit will automatically convert to a Class D license in 12 months. Drivers over 18 are initially issued a Learner's Permit. After 10 days, they can take the road test to get a Class D license. They must pass the test within 12 months of receiving their temporary license.
