If I'm under 18, are there any limits to my driver's license?

Yes. Nevada employs a graduated driver's license (GDL) program, which allocates restrictions and responsibilities over a period of time, until you earn your full license.

While driving on your NV learner's permit, you will ONLY be able to drive when accompanied by someone who:

  • Is at least 21 years old.
  • Has had their full license for at least 1 year.
  • Is sitting behind you.

If you're 16 or 17 when you first receive your Nevada driver's license, further restrictions include:

  • No passengers under 18 years old (except immediate family members) for the first 6 months.
  • No driving between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., unless it's to a scheduled school event.

Once you turn 18, these restrictions are lifted.

What happens after I pass my NV road test?

After passing the Nevada road test, you'll be eligible to receive your license. You'll be given a receipt to take to the closest DMV office to trade in for your license.

Once I have my permit, who can I drive with?

While driving with your NV learner's permit, you can ONLY drive with:

  • A parent or legal guardian.
  • A certified driving instructor.
  • A fully-licensed passenger who's at least 21 years old.

Can I choose where I have my photo taken for my driver's license?

Once I get my NV permit, what do I need to do before I can drive with my parents?

Once you get your NV instruction permit, you will be able to drive with anyone who is at least 21 years old and fully licensed.

What are the auto insurance requirements for NV drivers?

Nevada drivers have the following minimum insurance requirements:

  • Liability bodily injury: $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident.

How To Get A Nevada Driver’s License

Driving may offer the privilege of freedom—but it comes at the price of responsibility.

In order to legally drive in Nevada, you must pass a number of tests that show the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that you can handle a vehicle and follow the rules of the road.

Still, the process looks slightly different, depending on your age and the type of vehicle you want to drive.

Nevada Graduated Driver’s License (GLD) Program (Under Age 18)

The DMV has a system called the Graduated Driver’s License (GDL), which allocates certain driving privileges over a period of time.

If you’re under 18 when applying for your first Nevada license, you must use this system.

Nevada Learner’s Permit

The first step toward earning your license in Nevada is getting your learner’s permit. To earn it, you must:

  • Be at least 15 ½ years old.
  • Pass the written knowledge exam.
  • Pass a vision exam.

In order to start the process, schedule an appointment with the DMV, and:

A parent or guardian will also have to be present to sign paperwork on your behalf.

Once the tests are passed, the paperwork filed, and the fee paid, you’ll be issued your Nevada learner’s permit.

Learner’s Permit Restrictions

While practicing on your NV learners permit, you will ONLY allow you to drive while accompanied by someone who is:

  • At least 21 years old.
  • Fully licensed for at least 1 year.

You’ll also need to practice on this permit for at least 6 months before you can move on to the next step.

Intermediate Driver’s License

After your learner’s permit comes your intermediate license. To make the leap, you’ll have to:

  • Practice on your permit for at least 6 months.
  • Have no violations during that time.
  • Pass a state-approved Driver’s Education course.
  • Log at least 50 hours of practice.
    • If no Driver’s Ed courses are available within 30 miles of your home, you’ll need to practice for at least 100 hours.
  • Pass the driving exam.

Once you’re ready, schedule another appointment with the Department of Motor Vehicles, and make sure to bring:

You’ll also need your parents to sign paperwork on your behalf.

Provisional License Restrictions

If you’re 16 or 17 when you first receive your Nevada driver’s license, restrictions include:

  • No passengers under 18 years old (except immediate family members) for the first 6 months.
  • No driving between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., unless it’s to a scheduled school event.

The curfew will remain in place until you turn 18.

Full Driver’s License

You’ll be able to apply for your full driver’s license once you turn 18.

To make it official, contact your nearest DMV office and bring:

You’ll then be awarded your full Nevada driver’s license. This license has no restrictions. Congratulations!

Driver’s License (Age 18+)

If you’re applying for a first-time driver’s license in Nevada and you’re 18 or older, the process is a bit more streamlined.

Written Exam

To start, you’ll have to successfully pass:

  • The written knowledge exam.
  • An eye test.

Schedule an appointment with the NV Department of Motor Vehicles to take your tests, and:

After passing the exam and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your permit. During this time, you’ll be restricted to driving with a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

Road Skills Exam

To turn your permit into a license, you’ll need to pass the Nevada road test.

There’s no mandatory waiting period in Nevada to take the driving test if you’re 18 or older.

When you feel ready, schedule a driving test appointment with the DMV. Make sure to bring to this appointment:

Note that you’ll have to show up to this appointment accompanied by a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old.

The vehicle you test in will also need current and valid:

  • Liability insurance.
  • Registration.
  • License plates.

After successfully passing the test and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your full driver’s license. Congratulations!

Transferring an Out-of-State License

Welcome to Nevada!

You have 30 days after establishing residency in the Silver State to transfer your out-of-state license.

To do so, schedule an appointment with your closest Department of Motor Vehicles and bring:

  • Acceptable proof of your:

    • Nevada residency.
    • Social Security number.

Motorcycle Permit Restrictions

While driving on your NV motorcycle permit, you will NOT be able to ride:

You must hold this credential for at least 14 days before you can take the road test.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

To turn your CLP into a CDL, you’ll have to pass the road skills test.
