The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles is mandated by law to license all dealers operating in Delaware. The Division renews dealership license at the same time your dealer tags are renewed. Dealers with no dealer tags must make application for a new dealer license prior to the expiration of the current license.
The following provides information of how to apply for a dealership license and specific requirements for a particular type of dealership. Individuals interested in applying for a dealer license should review the Dealership Manual that contains the various laws and regulations pertaining to dealers in Delaware. The Dover Administrative Office can address any questions concerning the dealership application procedure. Call 302-857-4665 for assistance or e-mail us at DOT_MTRVDealerServicesHelpDesk@delaware.gov.
