DMV Dash Pass

Dash Pass on a cell phone

Dash Pass is the lobby management system used in most Nevada DMV offices. The DMV staff will place you in line using your cell phone number. If you do not have a cell phone, we will check you in with numbers or letters from your name.

The Reno office is conducting a test of Dash Pass Appointments.

The rural and commercial offices listed below offer the option to join the line remotely. You can get in line from wherever you are by text, phone call or online.

Appointments and remote join are not offered in the Las Vegas offices. You must visit these locations in person to join the line. See DMV Office Locations for a list of all offices.

Once checked in, you will receive a confirmation text with Dash Pass options. We will send you status updates and let you know when you are approximately 15 to 20 minutes from the front of the line.

When your turn arrives, Dash Pass will send a text with your window number. TV monitors and the public address system in the office will call you to the window using the last four digits of your number.
