Notice: Your actual fees may be $1 more than the amount printed on your renewal or other notice. This applies to notices printed and mailed prior to July 1.

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has legislative approval to modernize its current information technology (IT) platform. In an effort to offset a portion of the cost for the system modernization and keep up with future changes, a one dollar ($1.00) Technology fee will be associated to any transactions where a fee is normally collected. This will be in effect until June 30, 2020.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know I completed my smog check and have insurance?

This information is sent to DMV electronically. The renewal will not be accepted if an emission test is required and a valid result has not been received, or if your registration is suspended for a lapse in insurance coverage.  See Emissions or Insurance for more information.

How do I use my tax exemption when I renew my vehicle registration?

Exemptions are issued by County Assessors. The DMV has a system to verify the amount of certain exemptions so that you may use them in online renewals. The following exemptions may be used online:

  • Veterans (including donations to the Veterans Home Account)
  • Surviving Spouses
  • Blind

You may also mail your exemption and renewal or renew in person. See Registration Renewal options. See Registration Fees for details on tax exemptions.

I did not receive a renewal notice.  What do I do?

The most common cause of this is an incorrect address. Sign on to MyDMV to see your status, change your address and renew your registration. You can use the online Registration and Insurance Status Inquiry to check your registration only.

You may also email your license plate or driver license number and current address, call for instructions or renew in person at a DMV office. If we do not have your correct address, we will ask you to mail or fax a Change of Address Application with your renewal.

If you renew a registration online prior to changing your address, your documents will be sent to the address we have on record. The DMV will charge a small fee for substitute decals.

If you have received a postcard asking you to renew your driver's license in person, you must renew at a DMV office. You may wish to upgrade to a Real ID when you renew.

It is your responsibility to renew on time regardless of whether you have received a notice.

I am out of the state. Can I renew online? If not, how can I renew?

Please keep your address current with us as you travel. Sign up for MyDMV or mail or fax a Change of Address Application.

Driver License: You can renew your driver license online if you have received a renewal notice. In most cases, a new license will be mailed to the address we have on file. If this is an incorrect address or if you did not receive a notice, please renew by mail. See Driver License Renewal Options.

If you have received a post card asking you to renew in person, you must do so. If you cannot get to a Nevada DMV office, you cannot renew your license. The only exception to this is made for active-duty military members. their spouses, dependents and certain federal employees.

Active-duty military members and Nevadans out-of-state who are eligible to renew by mail can complete an Application for Nevada Driver License by Mail. Please call or email your name, Nevada driver license and current address before using this form. See Driver License Renewal Options for more information.

Registration: You can renew online if your vehicle does not require a smog check. The registration slip and decal will be sent to the address we have on file. If we do not have your correct address, you may not receive the documents.

If your vehicle requires a smog check and you cannot have it done in Nevada, you cannot renew online. Please renew by mail or fax. See Renewal Options.

Why were my registration fees charged online higher than those listed on the renewal notice?

Your renewal was late and the system automatically added in the appropriate late fees. Nevada registrations expire on the exact date listed on the registration slip and renewal notice, not at the end of the month. There are no extra charges for renewing online.

I completed an online renewal but did not receive my registration decal or driver license/ID card.

An incorrect address is the most common cause of this and DMV will assess a small fee to issue new documents. You may change your address through MyDMV or by mail or fax. See Address Changes.

Your registration or license record was updated upon completion of the online renewal and will show current to police.

Please wait 7-10 days for your renewal to arrive. If it has not arrived within 10 days, please email your current address and plate or driver license number, visit a DMV office or call 486-4368 option 6 in Las Vegas, 684-4368 option 6 in Reno or 1-877-368-7828 option 6 in rural Nevada.

If the DMV has your correct address, you may apply for a duplicate online or by mail. See Duplicate Registration. If you are not sure whether your renewal was completed, you can check the registration status online.

I don't have a credit or debit card.

We offer a number of choices:

  • Pay directly from your checking account by electronic check.
  • Use the mail and send a check or money order for the exact amount.
  • Pay with cash at DMV offices. Use a kiosk if possible.
  • Pay cash for a vehicle registration renewal at emission inspection stations which offer this service. See Emissions.
