NEWS FROM: Field Services Division
Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles offices will be closed Friday and Saturday for the observance of Nevada Day, the 138th anniversary of the Silver State’s admittance into the Union.
All state offices and schools will be closed Friday, October 25th. Department of Motor Vehicles metropolitan offices in Las Vegas and Reno, normally open on Saturdays, will also be closed Saturday, October 26th.
DMV Director Ginny Lewis declared the Saturday holiday for DMV workers to give them the benefit of a three-day weekend. “Our Field Services employees have worked hard over the past several years,” she said. “Because of their efforts, the department has been able to cut wait times even as Nevada’s population continues to grow. They deserve the time off.”
DMV offices will reopen at their normal times on Monday, October 28th.
