Title 2 Transportation
2215 Fee for Exchange of Driver License at Age 21(Formerly Reg. No. 87)
Whereas, the Division of Motor Vehicles now issues all driver licenses for a period of five (5) years; and
Whereas, persons under 21 years of age have noted on their licenses "Under 21"; and
Whereas, some applicants do not obtain their initial license until they reach 17, 18, 19 or 20 years of age (which would make their license expire sometime after their 21st birthday); and
Whereas, it is extremely beneficial to persons in establishments selling alcohol to be able to rely on the words "Under 21" as they appear on the licenses;
The following policy is implemented immediately:
A person having been issued a Delaware driver's license which states "Under 21" but which does not expire until after the person's 21st birthday, may exchange the license anytime beginning on the 21st birthday for a license not containing the words "Under 21".
The fee for this exchange of license shall be $2.00 (to cover the expense).
If a license is being renewed, or the class of license is being changed, or a duplicate is being issued (old license not available for surrender), or new endorsement is being issued, the $2.00 fee stated in (2.0) is not applicable.
