Nevada DMV introduces drive-through registration renewal

October 27, 2020 • Republished from
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is expanding its self-service registration renewal kiosk program, adding the first-of-its-kind drive-through Nevada DMV Now kiosk. The program processes over 650,000 motor vehicle transactions per year. Many of these transactions are conducted in retail stores, allowing citizens access to conveniently renew vehicle registrations. In addition to vehicle registration renewals, Nevadans are also able to complete the following transactions at a DMV Now kiosk:

  • Registration renewals.
  • Duplicate registration and decals.
  • Insurance suspension reinstatement.
  • Driver history printout.
  • Tax exemptions.

The new 42,000 square-foot South Reno DMV location, opening on Monday, Nov. 2, features three outside kiosks, including the first-ever drive-through DMV kiosk. Nevadans will complete their kiosk transactions, 24/7, without ever leaving their vehicle.

Previously known as the Nevada DMV-in-a-Box program, the Nevada DMV Now kiosks, provided by ITI of Fort Wayne, Indiana, allow Nevadans to complete vehicle registrations on their own schedule. With the drive-through kiosk and kiosks located in various retail locations that are open extended hours, Nevada vehicle owners can renew registrations when and where it is convenient for them.

Registrations can be renewed in as little as two minutes. Motorists use the access code or bar code from their renewal notice or input the license plate number and last 4 digits of their vehicle identification number, swipe their credit card and watch their registration and decal print out. Nevada DMV Now kiosks accept payments by credit or debit card in retail locations, and credit, debit, and cash in DMV office locations. On-screen instructions and voice prompts are available in English or Spanish.
