The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles announced it is offering online driver license and ID card renewals.
DMV customers needing to renew their Delaware driver license or ID card may do so at their convenience, 24/7.
In September, Gov. 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 able to develop more efficient means of serving customers and expand online services.
Customers age 18 and older with a valid Class D driver license or ID card within six months of expiration may renew online. Access to this and many more online services is via a customer’s secure MyDMV account at dmv.de.gov. This new 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.
