About DMV Locations

In Nevada, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is a state agency that manages vehicle and driver services, including titles, registration, plates, driver's licenses, and state identification cards. The DMV also oversees vehicle-related business and commercial services. DMV offices are located throughout the state, and they can handle most services. However, all commercial driver's license (CDL) services must be completed at a CDL office.

You can register your vehicle in Nevada at a local DMV office. You will need proof of insurance, and you may also be required to have an emissions test and VIN inspection. VIN inspections can be done at a full-service DMV. You can renew your registration at your DMV office or, in rural areas, at a County Assessor office that offers vehicle services. You can also apply for a title at these offices. However, titles are not issued immediately at the DMV. Your title will be mailed from the Carson City office after it has been processed.

You can also apply for a driver's license at the DMV. To save time, you can schedule an appointment in advance. If you are applying for a new license, you will need to bring proof of identity and date of birth, your Social Security number, and proof that you reside in Nevada. If you are applying from out of state and have an existing license, the DMV will cancel your old license. New drivers over the age of 18 can apply for an Instruction Permit. If granted, you can then apply for a full license. You must pass the vision, written, and road tests before getting a full license. Drivers under 18 must submit proof that they meet the minimum school attendance requirements in Nevada before applying. If they meet all the requirements, teens can apply for a learner's permit at age 15 ½ and a full license at 16, with parental consent and proper documentation.
