Nevada LIVE Insurance Program

Nevada LIVE (Liability Insurance Validation Electronically) is the Department of Motor Vehicles' project to modernize our system to verify motor vehicle liability insurance coverage. The DMV and insurance companies now exchange policy information over a secure internet connection rather than through data cartridges and tapes.

Program Development

The DMV and the insurance industry developed Nevada LIVE through the Nevada LIVE IICMVA Task Force. Each insurance company in Nevada was placed into one of three groups at the outset of the project:

In January, 2011 the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), in conjunction with the Department of Business and Industry, Division of Insurance, sent a letter to all non-compliant companies (Group B and C) notifying them that they must send insurance verification information to the DMV via web services (Group A).

The deadline was set as December 1, 2011. Here are program-related documents. See Insurance Information for Agents and Companies for user guides and forms.

Initial Announcement of Nevada LIVE

February 4, 2009

Dear Insurance Industry Representatives:

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (Department) is pleased to announce we are redesigning the method in which evidence of motor vehicle liability insurance will be verified with insurance carriers. The program has been named Nevada LIVE and planned implementation is scheduled for January 2010.

Nevada LIVE will eliminate the need for insurance companies to submit insurance information to the Department via the current medium. Instead, the data will be validated electronically via a web-based service utilizing standards prescribed by the Insurance Industry Committee on Motor Vehicle Administration (IICMVA). The Department is utilizing the IICMVA Model User Guide for Implementing Online Insurance Verification, Version 3.0 dated May 8, 2008, and available at IICMVA identifies the following benefits of online insurance verification:

The plan is to electronically query participating insurance companies writing Nevada policies during qualifying events and at predetermined intervals. For insurance companies that do not currently have the web-based services, an alternate system of reporting will be established for a limited amount of time to allow for full compliance.

The Department is working closely with an IICMVA Task Force, comprised of insurance industry representatives, to make the transition as smooth as possible. Our goal is to develop a program that meets the legislative intent to ensure all actively registered vehicles are insured.

We have enclosed a short questionnaire for you to complete. Your responses will be very valuable to the development of a successful insurance verification program. You can complete the survey online at or return the completed survey to the address listed above attn: Nevada LIVE survey. Please respond to the questionnaire no later than February 17, 2009.

The Department will be issuing regular updates on the progress and requirements of Nevada LIVE on the internet. You can review the updates at

Questions may be directed to the Department of Motor Vehicles, attn: Nevada LIVE at the address above, by telephone at (775) 684-4689, or by e-mail at
