Odometer Readings Required! We will use the reading from your smog check if you had a test completed. If not, have your current mileage ready. Motorcycles, mopeds and recreational vehicles are exempt. The Nevada DMV is required to collect mileage data to help legislators plan for future road construction. It's the law!
Two legislative bills, 2019 Assembly Bill 483 and 2021 Senate Bill 371, direct the DMV to gather an odometer reading at the time of any original vehicle registration, registration renewal or vehicle sale.
Data from odometer readings become part of your vehicle history and are used to compile reports of total miles driven for the Legislature. There are no fees, taxes or fines associated with this program. The pilot project runs through December 31, 2026.
New Federal Rule
The federal odometer disclosure period has been extended from 10 years to 20 years, beginning with 2011 vehicles. This is separate from the state pilot program. You must obtain a title or Secure Power of Attorney to transfer ownership on 2011 or newer vehicles. See Private Party Vehicle Sales or Occupational and Business Licensing for more details.
If your vehicle requires an emission test an odometer reading will be collected at that time. If you register or renew using DMV online services or at a DMV office, you will be asked for your odometer reading.
You may submit at the time of registration via (click links to access):

WHY do I have to provide my reading? WHAT are the laws and regulations? WHAT are the results?
The collection of odometer readings is required by law to assist our legislature in evaluating our highway construction and maintenance needs for Nevadans. The DMV reports results every six months.
See also 2019 Senate Concurrent Resolution 3.

The mileage data is not based on where the vehicle is being driven, only the number of miles. The law requires your odometer reading be reported at the time of any new registration or renewal regardless of the vehicle's location.
This pilot is for collection of mileage information only. There are no fees, taxes or fines associated.
Data from odometer readings become a part of your vehicle history and could impact the value of your vehicle at the time of sale or trade in.
You may correct an odometer entry error on your next registration renewal.
Your odometer reading will be received electronically via your emissions test. However, if you’re not required to test and you don’t provide your odometer reading, you will be unable to renew your registration online or at a kiosk. You will be required to renew in person at a local DMV office.
AB 483 will have no effect. The laws regarding Classic Vehicle, Classic Rod and Old Timer license plates have not changed. These vehicles are already required to report their odometer reading each year in order to qualify for the emissions testing exemption. See Classic Vehicles.
The Farmer/Rancher Affidavit was required at the time of registration for qualified individuals and their vehicles. For more information regarding registering a Farm Vehicle, see the Farmer/Rancher Affidavit.
Vehicles registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP) with a declared gross weight rating over 10,000 pounds are exempt from this reporting requirement. Other commercial vehicles are not. Please contact the Motor Carrier Division at (775) 684-4711 with questions.
