The extension does not apply to vehicle liability insurance or SR-22 requirements.

The expiration date on your driver’s license or other document will not change. The extension is a grace period to allow for the continued use of expired documents during the State of Emergency. See COVID Information for more details and FAQs.

Office Visits - Appointments Only in Metro Areas

The DMV is serving only customers with appointments at the offices in Carson City, Henderson, Las Vegas and Reno.
