Nevada vehicle registration, title and license plate renewal information

Nevada has made it very easy to register or renew your vehicle license plate. Nevada car, truck, boat, motorcycle and specialty vehicle registration and renewal information is below. Direct any questions to the appropriate division.

New residents have 30 days to obtain a Nevada driver license and 60 days to obtain their vehicle registration. If either item is expired, you must obtain it immediately. The fine for failing to register your vehicle is $250 - $500. Out of state insurance is not accepted. You must obtain insurance from a Nevada-licensed carrier.

Students, active duty military personnel, (including their accompanying family members), and others living temporarily in Nevada are not required to register their vehicles or obtain a driver license as long as they are not employed in Nevada. However, they must have a valid vehicle registration, driver license, and insurance from their home state in order to operate vehicles in Nevada. Should someone such as a military dependent or non-resident student obtain employment in Nevada, they will be subject to DMV rules as a Nevada resident.

Nevada law requires motorists to notify DMV of a change of address within 30 days of the move.

Keeping your address current with us is important as we send renewal notices in the mail.  We also use the mail to notify residents of license suspensions, vehicle insurance verification problems and other potentially serious issues. You may list separate mailing and residence addresses. See Address Changes.

If you are stopped for any reason while driving and do not have a valid registration, license, and insurance evidence, you are subject to fines and vehicle impound. 

Boats are registered with the Nevada Division of Wildlife.  Trailers are registered with DMV.

See Driver License, New Residents and Vehicles in Business for more information.
