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

CARSON CITY – DMV will host a public workshop Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 9 a.m. at the State Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson Street, Room 4100. The meeting will also be video conferenced to the Grant Sawyer State Office Building (555 E. Washington Ave, Room 4412) in Las Vegas and Great Basin College in Elko (1500 College Parkway, Room HTC 121).

DMV is holding the workshop to discuss and receive comments regarding proposed regulations for the new Driver Authorization Card. Legislators have estimated as many as 60,000 undocumented people will apply for the cards.

“The Driver Authorization Card will allow people without documentation to obtain a regular driver’s license to receive a driver privilege card in Nevada. Based on experience in other states, this will enhance the overall safety for all drivers in Nevada and will lead to fewer uninsured motorists driving on our roads,” said DMV Director Troy Dillard.

The main topic of discussion for the workshops will be the following:

  • Additional documents that may be accepted by the DMV to establish proof of residency; and
  • DMV’s proposed document translation requirements

SB 303 calls for applicants to submit at least two of the following documents as proof of residency:

  • Current receipts from rent or lease of a Nevada residence
  • Public utility bill dated within 60 days
  • Bank statement dated within 60 days
  • Credit card bill dates within 60 days
  • Employment check stubs
  • Other acceptable documents

DMV is proposing additional documents be allowed to include the following:

  • Tax records for the individual
  • Bill or statement for a request for payment
  • Record of property taxes assessed or paid in the state
  • Deed or documentation of a mortgage
  • Enrollment records or an identification card from an in-state educational institution
  • Receipts from a motel, hotel, campground or recreational vehicle park showing 30 consecutive days of residency
  • Voter registration card issued by Nevada Secretary of State
  • Documentation of receipt of public assistance from state
  • Military leave and earnings statement (LES) to show Nevada residence when deployed out of state
  • Notarized statement from property owner indicating applicant resides at property
  • Documentation applicant is enrolled in the Nevada Confidential Address Program (CAP)
  • Department-approved form for Nevada residency

SB 303 states, “No document which is written in a language other than English may be accepted by the Department pursuant to this subsection unless it is accompanied by a verified translation of the document in the English language.”

DMV’s proposed regulations define verified by the following:

  • Documents must be typed or electronically printed
  • Translations must be of the entire document
  • A typed or electronically printed statement certifying the translation is accurate and the translator is fully competent must accompany the translation
  • Documents must be notarized
  • Both the original document and translation are considered one document
  • Any name variation from any identity document must be accompanied by documentation as set forth in Nevada Administrative Code 483.055.
