Non U.S. Citizens
Nevada does not issue licenses or ID cards to tourists. Other non U.S. citizens may, or may not, be eligible for a license or a driver authorization card depending on their specific immigration status.
Residents of most foreign countries and all U.S. territories must meet the Proof of Identity requirements and take vision, knowledge and skills tests to qualify for a driver license.
Email or call before applying for a license. Please include the Status Code issued by the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. The type of license or ID issued is determined by immigration status.
Non citizens who possess U.S. issued immigration documents may qualify for a Real ID or a standard Nevada license or ID card. Others may qualify for a Driver Authorization Card. See Proof of Identity and Residency and choose the card that is right for you.
Non U.S. Citizens who have applied for, but not received, a Social Security number may attest to this on the driver license application. They are not required to provide proof of a Social Security number.
