Schedule an appointment at your local DMV office for your Nevada driver’s license driving test.
Take the driving test for your Nevada driver’s license. To be eligible for a driver’s license in Nevada, you are required to:
1. Be 16 years of age or older.
2. Present your Certificate of Completion that was issued to you by a driver’s ed course which is licensed by Nevada (if under 18.)
3. Have held an instruction permit for at least 6 months. During this time, you must not have been found at fault in an accident, or been convicted of any traffic moving violation, or been convicted of an alcohol or controlled substance offense.
4. Present your instruction permit.
5. Submit a completed Beginning Driver Experience Log
(if under 18.) (Form DLD-130).
6. Have your parent or guardian accompany you when you apply for your driver’s license (if under 18.) They must sign the Affidavit for Minor to Be Licensed
stating you have completed the required training.
7. Bring a vehicle in which to take the driving test along with the vehicle’s valid registration and insurance. You can only take the driving skills test in a passenger car or truck that is properly registered and insured (rental cars are not accepted). The Driving Examiner will check the registration and insurance, and perform a safety inspection.
Once you have passed the driving skills test, your license will be issued. The fee is $2.25. The following restrictions will apply to your license:
Young drivers may not transport any passenger under 18, except for immediate family members, for the first six months after the license was issued. Drivers under 18 may not drive between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. unless they are traveling to or from a scheduled event such as a school event or work. Law enforcement officials may ask for satisfactory evidence of the event. This applies to all drivers under the age of 18. It is illegal to drive in violation of any local curfew law. Nevada has a .02 blood alcohol limit for drivers under 21. Drivers can be arrested for any detectable amount of a controlled substance. It is important to note that a driver 18 and under will have their license suspended for any alcohol or controlled substance offenses, firearms offenses, or persistent truancy. A minor will also have their license suspended for any offense that an adult license would also be suspended.
