Online Vehicle Registration

If you have purchased a vehicle from a participating Nevada dealer, you may be able to complete the registration online without a trip to the DMV! You can transfer your current license plates or get new standard plates through the mail. It’s quick, easy, and best of all, no lines!

Sorry, but you must visit a DMV Full Service Office to register your new vehicle if you did not purchase it from a participating dealer or if it is a motor home or a trailer.

See Private Party Sales, Nevada Dealers, Out-of-State Dealers or our New Resident Guide. See Motor Carrier for apportioned registration and vehicles over 26,000 pounds.

How It Works

Participating dealers submit their sales information to the DMV online and issue what is called an Electronic Dealer Report of Sale (EDRS). Use the control number and last 4 digist of the Vehicle Identification Number to register online.

There are two styles of the EDRS that can be used to register your vehicle online.

Most Nevada dealers issue a green form with a stamped red control number. If your green DRS form is marked "EDRS", you can complete your registration online.

Green Electronic DRS

Some dealers issue the EDRS on plain paper as shown here.

White Electronic DRS

Getting It Done

Some additional restrictions apply. Motor homes and trailers cannot be registered online. Vehicles 26,000 pounds and over are registered through the Motor Carrier Division. Certain license plate styles such as Professional Firefighter and antique/classic vehicles cannot be transferred. See the complete list below.

You must obtain liability insurance from a Nevada-licensed carrier in the exact name(s) which will be on the registration and title. Coverage is verified electronically with your insurance company. Motorists who do not maintain Nevada liability insurance are subject to a registration suspension and reinstatement fees and fines. Out-of-state insurance is not accepted. See Vehicle Insurance Requirements. You must present a Nevada Evidence of Insurance card at registration and carry one in your vehicle at all times.

Non-Transferable Plate Styles
