What documents are required to obtain a Nevada drivers license? Nevada

Nevada doesn't require nearly as much documentation as most states, which makes it easier on you as a drivers license applicant. Here's what you'll need to bring to the DMV office.

NV Driver License Documents

  • Proof of identity/name and date of birth (such as a U.S. birth certificate or U.S. passport).
  • Proof of your Social Security number (such as your card or a W-2 form).
If you weren't issued a Social Security number, bring your denial letter or other proof that you don't have a number.

The DMV doesn't allow photocopies, so take original documents or certified copies.

If you're younger than 18, also have your:

  • Instruction permit.
  • Completed Beginning Driver Experience Log (Form DLD-130).
  • Drivers education certificate (or high school report card/school transcript).
  • Financial Responsibility Statement (signed by a parent or legal guardian).

Making Appointments

You'll need an appointment for your driving test, although some larger DMV offices offer testing on a stand-by basis.

Preparing with Practice Tests

If you haven't taken your written license test, you might want to boost your chances of first-time success by completing a practice test first. You can find these tests online from many sources.
