DMV sets public hearing for Driver Authorization Card regulations
Carson City hearing will be video conferenced to Las Vegas, Elko

CARSON CITY – DMV will host a public hearing Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 9 a.m. at the State Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson Street, Room 3138 to consider proposed regulations for the new Driver Authorization Card (DAC).

The meeting will be video conferenced to the Grant Sawyer State Office Building (555 E. Washington Ave, Room 4401) in Las Vegas and Great Basin College in Elko (1500 College Parkway, Lecture Hall GTA 130)

Since the August public workshop on the DAC, DMV has met with representatives of translation services, consulates from foreign governments, Hispanic community leaders, ACLU, drive schools and others to receive input into the proposed regulations.

Since the workshop, DMV has amended its approach to the translation requirement in Senate Bill 303.

DAC applicants will be allowed to submit documents that would not be accepted for a standard Nevada driver’s license or identity card.

DMV proposes that applicants provide one of the documents required for a standard driver’s license or ID card or one of the following documents:

  • Military Identification Card
  • Military Dependent Identification Card
  • DD Form 214
  • Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood

Or two of the following documents:

  • A driver’s license or identification card issued by another state, the District of Columbia, or any territory of the United States
  • A driver authorization card issued by another state, the District of Columbia, or any other territory of the United States
  • A passport issued by a foreign government
  • A birth certificate issued by a foreign government
  • A consular identification card
  • Any document issued by a foreign government that the Department determines is substantially similar to a consular identification card

In response to other input from the August workshop, DMV is also proposing to expand the list of documents to meet the proof of Nevada residency requirements in SB 303. The revised list includes 20 separate documents such as bank statements, medical bills, educational records, lease or mortgage statements, etc.

A complete copy of the proposed regulations and the legal notice for the hearing are available on the DMV website at www.dmvnv.com.

SB 303 goes into effect Jan. 2, 2014.
