Out-of-state residents on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces are not required to register their vehicles in Nevada. Spouses are also exempt if the spouse lives in Nevada solely to be with the service member.
U.S. service members and spouses who choose to obtain a Nevada registration are eligible for an exemption from the Nevada Governmental Services Taxes on vehicles. Members of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and other foreign forces are not eligible for this exemption and must pay the full registration fees.
You must submit a Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) dated within the past 30 days to claim the exemption. Spouses have additional requirements that are listed on the VP 203s form.
Complete the appropriate form and submit all of the required documents listed when you register or renew your vehicle.
Only one of the above forms is required.
- Use the VP 203 form if only the service member's name appears on the registration, or if both the member and spouse are listed.
- VP 203S must be submitted if only the name of the spouse appears on the registration.
You can renew by mail using these forms. Contact us.
The DMV will waive registration late fees for active duty military members assigned to combat or combat support positions. Use the Active Duty Military Combat Affidavit (VP 258) when you renew your registration. This form must be submitted at the time of renewal. You may renew by mail if the form is notarized or you may sign it and renew in person at a DMV office.
Other registration requirements are the same as those for non-military. See:
