How Do I Get These Plates? Top ↑

The vehicle must meet the specific requirements listed on each plate's application.
If you wish to claim the Classic Vehicle or Classic Rod emissions exemption, see Emissions.

If your vehicle is currently registered in Nevada, download and complete the appropriate application. Bring this, the required documentation and the old plates to the DMV or Assessor. If you wish to keep the old plates, you must bring the rear plate and surrender the decal in person.

If you choose to keep the same expiration date, we will issue a temporary movement permit with a new registration slip and decal. No emission inspection or registration renewal is required.

You have the option of renewing your vehicle registration for a full year. In addition to the plate application, you will need to complete an emission inspection if required and if the last test was completed more than 90 days ago. Your expiration date will change if the current expiration date is more than 35 days away. Credit will be given for the unused portion of your current Nevada registration.

If you have just purchased a vehicle or are registering it in Nevada for the first time, see the full list of Registration Requirements or New Resident Guide and use our online Registration Fee Estimates. Bring all required documentation along with the completed plate application.
