The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles wants to remind customers to try online services first and to avoid standing in line at offices early next week.

The Monday following Thanksgiving is traditionally the DMV’s busiest day of the year. DMV offices will be closed four days from Nov. 26 to Nov. 29.

DMV offices in Carson City, Henderson, Las Vegas and Reno are appointment-based. Walk-in services on weekdays are limited to movement permits, kiosks, vehicle inspections and general information.

Customers should not stand in line for other types of transactions. The DMV is also asking customers who will not be able to keep any appointment to cancel it.

Services available online at dmvnv.com or by mail include driver’s license and ID card renewals, duplicate licenses and IDs and original registration of vehicles purchased from a Nevada dealer. Nevadans have completed more than 35,000 online license and ID card renewals since this new service launched on September 21.

The Department of Motor Vehicles will continue to operate at 50% of capacity and maintain the highest standards of compliance with COVID-19 safety measures.
