DMV TO OFFER LIMITED COMMERCIAL DRIVER SERVICES

Two offices will offer CDL services only

CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles will reopen its Commercial Driver License (CDL) offices in North Las Vegas and Sparks on Monday, May 11.
The two offices will offer limited services to commercial drivers only.  No transactions for the general public will be completed. A reopening date for the full service DMV offices has not been set.

“We’re reopening these two offices to keep trucks on the road and help commercial drivers earn a living,” said DMV Director Julie Butler. “The trucking industry is vital to the economy. Plus, a national shortage of drivers has been a problem since well before the COVID pandemic.”

Services offered to drivers will include written testing for Commercial Learner Permits, conversion of permits into full commercial licenses and license reinstatements in cases where a driving skills test is not required. 

The CDL offices will not offer driving skills tests at this time due to social distancing protocols.

Only 10 customers at a time will be allowed inside due to the relatively small size of both facilities. Social distancing will be in effect. 

The DMV staff will wear face coverings and customers are encouraged to do so.  The DMV has purchased sneeze barriers and other personal protective equipment and will follow proper cleaning protocols.
