AVOID THANKSGIVING CROWDS AT THE DMV

Agency is offering more online services than ever

CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is urging the motoring public to avoid the crowds on its busiest days of the year – the days before and after Thanksgiving.

DMV offices will be closed over the entire four-day Thanksgiving weekend, November 26-29. The Monday following Thanksgiving is usually the busiest single day of the year. DMV recommends customers pick another day to take care of license and registration needs or use one of the alternate methods to conduct DMV business.

“The good news is the DMV offers more than two dozen online services and keeps adding more,” said Interim Director Terri L. Albertson. “You should check our website and see if you can get it done online or at a kiosk.”  The agency has self-service kiosks at most DMV offices and at 26 supermarkets and other partner locations across the state.

The DMV added registration cancellation to its website just two weeks ago and online vehicle movement permits earlier this year. The DMV and the Clark County Assessor also teamed up this year to enable Clark County veterans to use their registration tax exemptions online.

Other online services include address changes, registration renewals and driver history printouts. Many motorists are not aware they can register a newly-purchased vehicle online as well.

“If you buy a car from a Nevada dealer during the holidays, skip the trip to the DMV and register it online,” Albertson said.

The DMV website address is www.dmvnv.com.
