E-ZPass Units Now Sold at Motor Vehicle Offices

Dover - The Department of Transportation (DelDOT), Delaware E-ZPass, and the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announce the expansion of the "E-ZPass On The Go" services to all four DMV offices in the state. The new sales opportunity began on Monday, September 11, offering customers at any DMV Office the opportunity to purchase a Delaware E-ZPass transponder.

Delaware residents now have the ability to purchase an E-ZPass transponder packet at a cost of $35, which includes the $25 transponder fee along with $10 in prepaid tolls. Once purchased, customers simply call the toll free hotline at 1-888-397-2773 within 24-hours of purchase to register their account.

"DelDOT has proudly been in the forefront of promoting the advantages of the E-ZPass toll collecting system," Transportation Secretary Carolann Wicks stated. "Nearly three years ago we established our own Delaware-based E-ZPass Customer Service Center where customers can call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and have their needs addressed promptly, courteously, and efficiently. Now with the expansion of our services to the DMV, our customers will find it easier and more convenient to enroll in the benefits of electronic toll collection."
