Delaware DMV goes to appointment-only policy for its lobbies


The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT)  will move to an appointment-only policy as a way to limit its  DMV lobbies to 10 visitors.

That number is specified in the governor’s emergency coronavirus order.

Effective Monday, all four Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) locations will go to kiosk, drive-through and emergency appointment only. Dealer paperwork can be dropped off for processing and picked up when notified.

Inspection lanes will remain open as no personal interaction is required, and the drive-through windows at each location will have additional staff working to process transactions. At no time will there be more than 10 people permitted in DMV lobbies.

To schedule an appointment for urgent business at DMV that cannot wait until after the current situation passes, please call:
