The state of Nevada, like every state in the nation, maintains a huge amount of legislation covering hundreds of topics. The sections covering motor vehicles are known casually as the Vehicle Code, and they cover all aspects of vehicle regulations, including rules of the road, administrative processes, and fee schedules.
The Vehicle Code can be found online, word for word, in two main documents: the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS), which contains the regulations and laws for the state, and the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC), which contains the administrative procedures for all state departments, including the DMV.
The NRS even offers a text search feature, where you can type in any keyword and find statutes relating to that term. This can come in handy when you're searching for a specific law or regulation.
The DMV has prepared an information page where it has broken down the sections of the Vehicle Code for your convenience. Many sections contain clickable links to both the NRS and the NAC.
Nevada is serious about safe driving and smooth-running administration by the DMV. Legislators are constantly writing new laws to clarify situations and increase drivers' protection on public highways. The following are some of the topics covered by the Vehicle Code:
- Driver licenses: applications, testing, and fees
- Licensing, registration, and sales of vehicles
- Hazardous materials regulations
- Traffic laws
- Insurance requirements
- Bikes, motorcycles, and other two-wheeled vehicles
- Air pollution legislation
- Administration of motor vehicle laws
For certain industries, the DMV has prepared summary documents of the latest legislative changes, such as for the vehicle industry and motor carriers.

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
