Use our Alternate Services

Here are some specific transactions you may be able to handle without visiting an office.

Use MyDMV for Address Changes. Use MyDMV or our self-service kiosks for registration renewals, driver history printouts and insurance suspension reinstatements. Most vehicles purchased from Nevada dealers can be registered online through EDRS. You can transfer plates or get new ones by mail.

Kiosks are available at larger DMV offices and at a number of private businesses in the Las Vegas and Reno areas. See also Online Services.

Do not visit the DMV on the first day after a holiday

Offices are typically busier than usual after a holiday.
