Renewing Your Registration by Mail

If your car is less than six model years old, you do not have to submit your car for an inspection.

Delaware DMV locations provide drive-thru service for those who need to get their registrations renewed.

For any vehicle 5,000 pounds or less, a car owner will pay a renewal fee of $40 per year, with the option of renewing your vehicle once every two years if it had a completed inspection or every year without inspection for cars at least six years old.
