Compliance Enforcement Division
The Compliance Enforcement Division investigates cases of document fraud and identity theft that involve the use of DMV processes.
We also investigate complaints against auto dealers and similar businesses, body shops, garages, emission inspection stations and driving schools.
The Occupational and Business Licensing Section issues DMV licenses to nearly every business in the motor vehicle industry, autonomous vehicle firms, emission inspection stations and driving schools.
Vehicle salesmen, emission inspectors and drive school instructors are also licensed individually.
See the Motor Carrier Division for fuel industry and IRP/IFTA licensing.
Nevada operates a vehicle Emission Inspection/Maintenance program in cooperation with other federal, state and local agencies.
Emissions testing stations are privately owned and decentralized.
Tests are required on gasoline and light-duty diesel vehicles based in and around the Las Vegas Valley in Clark County and in many parts of Washoe County.
Fraud & Identity Theft
Contact your local law enforcement if you believe you have been a victim of identity theft.
If your driver's license information has been misused, file a DMV ID Theft Complaint Form (CED 013). A police report is not required but is strongly encouraged.
For more information regarding identify theft, please visit the Nevada Attorney General Identity Theft Program.
The Federal Trade Commission also has advice on specific steps you can take if you are a victim of identity theft.
Visit Nevada Consumer Affairs for information on fraud in other areas such as finance, real estate and Internet scams.
Public Hearings, Boards & Committees
See Public Hearings, Boards and Committees for legal notices on proposed regulatory changes for licensees.
The DMV provides support for the Advisory Committee on Control of Emissions from Motor Vehicles and the Automotive Affairs Advisory Board.
