Customers Encouraged to Go Online to Complete Transactions

RENO – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles plans to permanently close its office on Galletti Way on October 23. As a result, there will be no DMV services available in Reno October 26-30, as everything is moved over to its new office in south Reno. 

“We would like to ask everyone to utilize our online services and not drive to other DMV locations,” said DMV Director Julie Butler. “Customers can renew their driver’s licenses/ID online now. We have seen more than 12,000 people renew this way in less than two weeks.”

Registration renewals are available as well at, along with many other services like personalized plate ordering, address changes, movement permits, driver history, and more.

“We plan on adding more online services in the future to make things easier for our customers,” added Butler.

The new building, located at 9155 Double Diamond Parkway, will open on November 2. It has three kiosks outside to help expedite the customers’ experience, including the first drive-through kiosk in the nation and 42,000 square feet of space.

It also features a stand-alone emissions/commercial driver license (CDL) facility. Parking spaces will increase from 120 to 550 and customer service windows from 36 to 53.
Appointments that have already been booked for November 2 and beyond will transfer to the new facility. Customers should cancel their appointment if they will not be able to keep it.

The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and Motor Carrier offices at 810 Greg St. in Sparks will also close permanently on October 16 and open at the new location October 19. These services are housed in a separate building on the property with an address of 890 Trademark Dr.
