Nevada DMV Online Vehicle Registration


Online registration is a limited pilot project. You may use this service only if you purchased your vehicle from a Nevada dealer and the control number on your Dealer Report of Sale (DRS) begins with the letters "EDRS". Otherwise, you must register your vehicle at a Full Service DMV office.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new vehicle! You may be able to skip the line at the DMV by registering online.You can transfer your current license plates or get new standard license plates through the mail. It’s quick, easy, and best of all, no lines!

Your vehicle will be registered after the successful completion of this transaction. Please be sure you have a printer available as you will need to print documents. The Certificate of Registration and decal will be mailed within two business days. If you are getting new license plates, they will be mailed separately within 10 business days.

We mail to the address listed on your Dealer Report of Sale (DRS). If the address on your DRS is incorrect, you must register in person at a full service DMV office.

 

Because the Online Registration is fully automated, there are limitations on using this service.

To begin, please enter the entire Control Number located on the upper right-hand side of the DRS (include the letter that is in front of the numbers). Next enter the last four characters of the vehicle identification number (VIN), then select Submit.
