The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is a government agency in the United States that is in charge of vehicle registration, filing and keeping of drivers’ records, and the issuance and renewal of drivers’ licenses. Although “DMV” is known by different names in the different states, it is generally called DMV and serves the same purpose, especially in terms of driver’s licensing and vehicle registration.
The DMV procedure for getting a copy of your driver’s record is simple depending on whether you need a copy of your three-year or ten-year driving history. Here are the quick and easy ways you can get a copy of your DMV record in the state of Nevada:
- Your first option is to personally visit the office of the DMV in Nevada located at 555 Wright Way Carson City. Make sure to have your driver’s license and another proof of identification just in case the DMV officer who will process your request would need to see additional ID. Also, you will be charged a small fee of $7.00 for a non-certified copy of your Driver History Report. The same amount is charged for both the 3-year and 10-year driver history report.
- DMV self-service kiosks are available in DMV offices and they also release both 3-year and 10-year driver history records. The advantage of these kiosks is that they save you the hassle of falling in line and waiting at the DMV offices. You may also choose to pay the $7.00 fee using your debit or credit card at these kiosks.
- If you are currently living outside of Nevada, you may choose to mail or fax your request to the DMV office in Carson City. Mail your request to the DMV Records Section at 555 Wright Way, Carson City, NV 89711-0250 or send it through fax to the number (775) 684-4899.
- If you choose to request for your DMV records online, note that you may only get a copy of your 3-year driver history record and that you will still be charged the $7.00 processing fee. Have your driver’s license ready and click this link to the Nevada Official Driving Records Online. Enter the necessary information as it appears on your driver’s license, read the privacy notice, and click the button “Get Report” to complete your request.
- Getting a certified copy of your DMV record follows the same procedure. The only difference is that you will need to pay an extra fee of $4.00 for the certified copy of your DMV records. Make all checks payable to “DMV.”
- It is important to remember that for all records requests, the requestor must comply with all DMV requirements and accomplish the application and affidavit found in the Application for Individual Record Information (IR-002).
