Southern Nevada DMV services include changing and renewing your driver’s license and vehicle registration cards. In Nevada you must have current insurance to qualify, and having the proper documentation proving this coverage will ensure that your time is spent wisely.
In Nevada the Department of Motor Vehicles is not only the place that you will update your driver’s license and vehicle registration information, but also where you will register to vote, and where you can obtain information about other local services.

Identification Cards and Driver’s License
With your local address in Las Vegas you will want one of your first local errands to be stopping by the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to apply for your Nevada Driver’s License or Identification card, and register your vehicle. You have 30 days to change your license or ID over and 60 days to register your vehicle. Failing to do so may result in fines.
There are fees associated with changing your license or ID card to Nevada and registering your vehicle. Non-Commercial Driver’s License Fees range from $17 to $32 depending on age and whether or not it has expired. Identification cards range from $6 to $12, again depending on age. Vehicle registration includes a basic registration fee, government services tax and miscellaneous fees for title, tag and inspections. Registration is annually and so is renewal, and basic fees are based on the class of the vehicle and weight starting at $33 and increasing from there. Governmental services tax are value based, and in Clark County (the county Las Vegas sits in) there is a supplemental governmental services tax as well.
You will first need to obtain insurance from a Nevada-licensed insurance carrier. You will also need a smog check completed, for classic cars they may not require this item. And be prepared to bring in your out-of-state tags to register in the state of Nevada.
