Delaware License Plates & Placards
Delaware law requires all buyers of Delaware-registered vehicles to make application for a new certificate of title immediately following the purchase of the vehicle. As the new owner of the vehicle, you must apply for a title in person at your local DMV office within 30 days from the date of purchase to avoid a $35.00 penalty charge. Before applying, the vehicle first needs to pass a safety and emissions inspection.
You must register your vehicle to apply for a license plate and renew your registration to renew your license plate validation sticker. You can replace a lost, stolen, or damaged license plate or validation sticker in person at a Delaware DMV office.
