LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles says it will reopen to the public on June 15, the beginning of a phased reopening plan, and that more people will have access to its online portal MyDMV.

Because the DMV anticipates high demand for in-person services, it says those with the most urgent needs will be addressed first during the first 30 days, such as renewals and registrations.

People looking to update their driver's license or get a Real ID, for example, are asked to wait to book an appointment.

While not everyone will be able to book an in-person appointment right away, more people will have access to its online portal, MyDMV, because there is no longer a social security requirement when setting up an account, the DMV says.

For those visiting in person, the department says sneeze guards have been installed at locations across the state and they will keep offices at 50% capacity. Chairs have been removed from the waiting areas to keep people from waiting for help in the building.

Customers will be able to make an appointment in advance, the department says.
