Motorists are required to present a Nevada Evidence of Insurance card for vehicle registration, renewals, reinstatements and license plate changes.
See Locations for office fax numbers if your customers ask you to fax a card. DMV technicians enter this information into the DMV computer system, which instantly verifies it with the carrier through Nevada LIVE.
A recently-purchased or changed policy may not be verified instantly if you have only issued a binder and the carrier has not completely processed it. You need to check the Registration and Status Inquiry at a later date to ensure your insurance company validated the policy.
