DMV Adjusts New License Rollout Schedule
Most rural offices will get “ASI” licenses earlier

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is accelerating the rollout of the new Advanced Secure Issuance (ASI) licensing program in its rural offices. After a successful rollout in Las Vegas this week, ASI will be brought online in many of the rural offices ahead of schedule next week.

ASI is a new license or ID card marked with a gold star indicating it meets federal identification standards for boarding commercial aircraft and entering federal buildings where identification is required.

The DMV is reminding motorists that there is no need to get an ASI card immediately. Any valid Nevada license or ID card will be accepted for federal purposes at least until 2014.

The Department recommends that motorists visit its website before making any major change to a license or ID card. The DMV will be asking motorists to show proof of identity and residential address on most license transactions. Duplicates are one exception. For renewals, motorists should renew by internet or mail if possible and wait for their next in-person renewal.

Please see the updated rollout schedule below. Complete details are on the DMV website at www.dmvnv.com.
