So have you been to DMV lately to renew your driver’s license? You may have read about this in the newspapers.  On July 1, DMV started issuing the new secure driver license and identification cards.  Delaware is not the only state doing this.  We have been receiving calls from Delawareans in Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Maine, New Jersey, and Kentucky.

We have had a lot of patrons going to DMV, then having to come here to get their vital record, then go back to DMV.  In order to renew, get a driver’s license, or an ID card, you must now bring with you a legal certified copy of your birth certificate with a raised seal.  If you are a female and your last name is now different than the one on your birth certificate, you will need a legal certified copy of your marriage certificate as well. DMV is also requiring some other documentation.  For a complete list of the documents you need and for more information regarding the new cards, you can visit DMV’s website.

 If you need to get a copy of your birth certificate and you are older than 72 or you need a copy of your marriage record and it is older than 40 years, you need to contact us. If you are younger than 72 or you have been married for fewer than 40 years, you need to contact the Office of Vital Statistics.
