DMV closed and offline Saturday for state of Nevada IT upgrade

Posted at 1:26 PM, Jun 17, 2020

Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles field offices will be closed and all online services will be down from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 20.

The outage will include all DMV websites, kiosks, emissions stations and online services used by auto dealers. Motorists will not be able to complete emissions tests.

The State of Nevada Enterprise IT Services Division is replacing central computing equipment used by most state agencies.

“Our staff will be standing by to make sure DMV services are up and running after the outage. It’s important that motorists use the DMV’s alternate services rather than visit an office when possible, particularly for vehicle registration renewals,” said DMV Director Julie Butler.

DMV Field Services offices in Las Vegas, Henderson and Reno offer Saturday hours. Beginning June 27, they will be open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. only.
