How to Renew a Driver's License in Nevada

Compare Auto Insurance Rates and Save Exclusive!

A Nevada Driver's License can be renewed either in person at any DMV office in the State, by mail or the internet. You will receive a postcard 30 days before your license is set to expire, informing you whether you have qualified for a renewal by mail or internet.


  1. Your Nevada driver's license will expire on your birthday every four years.
  2. Your driving privileges expire on the midnight of your birthday if you do not renew. You can renew your license any time prior to its expiration.


You can renew your license at a DMV Express office or a Full-service office.
You must bring:

  1. Your expiring license and the renewal application.
  2. If your name has changed, documentation of the name change is required.
  3. Renewal fee of $21.25, payable by cash, check or credit card. If you are age 65 or older, the fee is reduced to $16.25.

Depending on your driving record, especially if you received a notice in the mail not qualifying you for renewal over the internet or mail, you may be required to take additional tests. The only acceptable exceptions are military personnel, their spouses and dependants.


Renewal by mail is available only if you receive a postcard in the mail qualifying you for it.
When you renew by mail, you should prepare and/or complete:

  1. The mail renewal form.
  2. Credit Card Authorization Slip (RD-205) if you wish to pay by a credit card.
  3. Renewal fee of $19 or $14 if you are aged 65 or older.
  4. Name change documentation, if required.

Follow the instructions on the postcard to send in all the documents. The renewed driver's license will arrive by mail within four to six weeks.


If you received a renewal notice with an access code on it, you may choose to renew your driver's license on the DMV website.
You will require:

  1. The renewal notice with an access code.
  2. Renewal fee of $14 or $19 if you are aged 65 or older, which can be paid via checking account number and routing number if you wish to use the e-check option, or any acceptable credit card (Debit, Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express).

testing your vision in a

testing your vision in a microscope instrument is so difficult to focus specially when you have a bi-focal eyeglasses. Can we go for eye (vision) test by just being natural and read the letters posted on the wall just like the way it was before? we don't drive using a microscope instrument anyway. Please advice.
