DOVER, Del. -- March 7, 2013

The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in partnership with Delaware
Interactive  have developed a new temporary tag issuing system for new car
dealerships. The new program, which officially launches on Friday, March 8,
will provide greater efficiencies for automobile dealerships to fulfill DMV
requirements governing the sale of motor vehicles and temporary tag issuance.

The DMV has historically enjoyed a close working relationship with the state’s
auto dealership community. Over the past few years, the DMV has fielded
requests from dealerships for an integrated online system that would replace
the current paper-based process, which required dealers to prepay for
temporary tags and keep inventory.

DMV Director Jennifer Cohan explained the program, “The DMV is launching the
new print on demand temporary tag system to give new car dealers the ability
to print temporary tags as needed for customers. The print on demand system
adds yet another customer service benefit to DMV’s growing list of online, and
onsite efficiencies for all customers. The DMV is also happy to provide this
to our Delaware dealers at no cost.”

The web-based temporary tag system will streamline the issuance of temporary
vehicle registration at the dealership by allowing dealers to print a
“temp-tag” on site and on demand. There will no longer be a need to send
paperwork back to the DMV, which helps improve efficiency by reducing manual
data entry and decreasing the administrative burden on the DMV and dealership
staffs. With approximately 130,000 temporary tags issued annually, this
drastically reduces the amount of time taken per tag issued.

Guy Winer, General Manager of Winner Ford Dover, explained that, “The new
system will help us out tremendously and improve the integrity of the
temporary tag issuing process. It will also be great for consumers because
it’s an instant transaction process.”

I.G. Burton BMW of Milford was one of the dealerships that piloted the new
system. Burton’s Finance Manager Rick Marine said about the program, “I love
it! It speeds up the sales process, is very organized, and we no longer have
to search through a lot of paperwork and temporary tag forms. I would never
want to go back to the old system.”

A key safety feature of the new temporary tag system provides state law
enforcement agencies the ability to identify - in real-time - any vehicle
owner authorized to operate on Delaware roadways driving a vehicle with the
new temporary tag. This confirmation offers enhanced security for Delaware
motorists by reducing the risk of fraud. The temporary tags will also no
longer be handwritten, but printed, therefore establishing visual conformity
and increasing the legibility of information.
