Want to know whether or not your local Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles branch has a long line? Or want to know which brake inspection lane has the shortest wait? Before you climb into your car and go find out firsthand, consider a trip to the Delaware DMV web site and check out their live video feed.

That’s right, the Delaware DMV offers several assorted live video feeds through its web site which show you activity in license branches and vehicle inspections sites around the state. So far the cities of Wilmington, New Castle, Dover and Georgetown are covered. Visitors to the web site can tune in to Vehicle Inspections Lanes for brake and safety & emissions tests. They also provide live feed for the Drivers License and Titles & Registration waiting areas so you know whether or not your local branch is busy.

Defensive drivers understand the importance of making certain their vehicles are in excellent condition and meet all state motoring requirements. You can be the best driver in the world but if your vehicle fails on you, there is not much you can do about it. Having your vehicle properly inspected is also the best way to avoid a citation for violating a vehicle requirement. This might not add points to your license but the fines can add up quickly and it might cost you your license if you don’t get it fixed before you get stopped again.

Delaware is a relatively small state so wiring their license branches for live video feeds isn’t as difficult as it might be in a state like California or Texas, but the fact that they went the extra mile to provide this service for their residents certainly goes a long way toward recognizing the needs of the people they serve.

How many hours of your life have you spent waiting in a long line at the driver’s license office or vehicle inspection line? In Delaware, they try to keep those hours to a minimum.
