    Access the Vehicle Code

    Knowing Delaware's Vehicle Code can give you a better understanding of all the Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) rules. Motor vehicle laws, procedures, and regulations are all included in Title 21 of the Delaware Code.

    Unique situations come up and you may want to go right to the source looking for answers. For example, there is an entire chapter of Title 21 dedicated to habitual offenders.

    As a consumer you could have questions about buying a vehicle. The code includes chapters the sale of motor vehicles as well as on odometers.

    The Vehicle Code is the best place to look for esoteric rules like funeral procession laws, found in Chapter 71. You might also wonder about fire lanes; check out Chapter 70 for more information on the use of fire lanes.

    The basic DMV transactions, driver licensing and vehicle registration, are well covered in the vehicle code. The types of license plates and even farm equipment registrations are explained in the chapters of the vehicle code.

    If you are planning a visit to the DMV to clear up a unique problem or situation (or you want to study up on the road rules because you got a traffic ticket), prepare yourself by reading through the relevant sections of the vehicle code. If you find interpreting the Vehicle Code difficult to do, then you can always see an attorney.

    And don't forget to use the DMV as a resource; the DMV offices are ready to help you with all of your DMV transactions.

    Check Your Driver's License Status

    Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
