The Department is authorized to waive the $18.25 duplicate fee for persons who have been released from prison or jail within the past 90 days. You should bring official documentation of your release date from the Nevada Department of Corrections, its counterpart in another state, or a local jail.
This is a one-time exemption for duplicates only. You must apply for this in-person at a DMV office, complete the request form and provide documentation of your release date.
You may be required to reimburse the $3.25 photo fee to the Department at the time of your next regular renewal if you are employed at the time of the renewal.
The fee exemption does not apply to:
- New residents obtaining a Nevada license or ID for the first time
- Any fees or requirements associated with a license suspension or revocation
- Commercial licenses
