When moving to a new state like Nevada, you will have to take some time to make sure that you are in compliance with all laws. The first thing that you need to do when getting moved into you new home in Nevada is to take the time to get your car registered. You have around 30 days to get this process done before you will be subjected to late fees. In order to get the car registered, you will have to go to the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.

  • The current registration and plates that you have on the car
  • The tittle to the vehicle
  • The Nevada Emission Vehicle Inspection Report
