Please Do not

Don’t mail applications, titles or other documents! The DMV is unable to receive or process mail.

Don’t contact the Nevada DOT, Department of Public Safety or other agencies with DMV-related questions. They are unable to assist you.

Use Alternate Services if possible

Renew your vehicle registration online or at a kiosk and use our other online services to help avoid backlogs once the department reopens. See Online Services and Kiosks. Most driver’s licenses and ID cards cannot be renewed online.
