Compliance Enforcement Division

Magnifying Glass

Investigations

The Compliance Enforcement Division investigates cases of document fraud and identity theft that involve the use of DMV processes.

We also investigate complaints against auto dealers and similar businesses, body shops, garages, emissions inspection stations and driving schools.

We do not handle complaints concerning towing, movers or taxicabs. For a complete list of enforcement agencies, visit fightfraud.nv.gov

Auto Dealer

Business Licensing

The Occupational and Business Licensing Section issues DMV licenses to nearly every business in the motor vehicle industry: dealers, lessors, distributors, brokers, manufacturers, rebuilders, body shops, wreckers, salvage pools, transporters, autonomous vehicle developers, emission inspection stations and driving schools.

Vehicle salesmen, emissions inspectors and drive school instructors are also licensed individually.

The DMV's Motor Carrier Division licenses the fuel industry and issues IRP/IFTA credentials.

See our Vehicles in Business Guide for a summary of regulations and agencies.

Emissions

Nevada operates a vehicle emissions Inspection/Maintenance program in cooperation with other federal, state and local agencies.

Emissions testing stations are privately owned and decentralized. Tests are required on gasoline and light-duty diesel vehicles based in and around the Las Vegas Valley in Clark County and in many parts of Washoe County.
