LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has added additional extension for expired or soon-to-be expired driver’s licenses and ID cards and new, limited Saturday hours for new Nevada residents. 

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak will direct an additional extension for non-commercial driver’s licenses, identification cards, non-commercial instruction permits, and Driver Authorization Cards. These licenses, permits, and IDs with an expiration date of March 12, 2020, or later have been extended for an additional 60 days from September 14 through November 12, 2020. The existing extension was set to expire on Sunday.  Meanwhile, the one-year extension for drivers age 65 and older remains in effect.

The DMV will be offering online renewals for most driver’s licenses and all ID cards in October

The new 60-day extension does not apply to vehicle registration or other DMV documents. The existing extension for registration for those documents expired on Sunday. 

Vehicles must have either a movement permit or a full registration to be driven on public streets. Movement permits are available without an appointment at all DMV offices.  

Registration renewals are available online and at kiosks.  Most vehicles purchased from a Nevada dealer can be registered online. There are currently more than 200,000 expired vehicle registrations in Nevada.

The DMV will be offering limited Saturday hours specifically for new residents. DMV Offices will be open for new residents who need a Nevada driver’s license or ID by appointment only from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. beginning Saturday, September 19. 

The DMV still recommends handling transactions online when possible, and to make appointments when not at
