DMV Appointments in Nevada

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offers an online scheduling system to book some road tests. Before you visit a branch office save yourself some time by booking an appointment first. Please read the sections below for more details.

For all other driver and vehicle related services at the Nevada DMV you must wait in line. Keep in mind not all require an in-person visit to a branch office; find out which online services you can take care of from your own computer.

Types of Nevada DMV Appointments

At this time, the DMV offers appointments only for driver skills tests (i.e. road tests) for:

  • Class C (non-commercial) driver licenses.
  • Class M (motorcycle) driver licenses.

NOTE: The DMV doesn't offer appointments for written knowledge tests; however, you can put yourself in line using the state's Dash Pass service, which is available online or by phone. See How to Schedule a DMV Appointment below for details.

Because Nevada provides various ways to complete certain driver-related transactions, many drivers can skip a trip to the DMV altogether and complete these tasks online or at self-serve kiosks. Refer to How to Schedule a DMV Appointment below.

The Nevada DMV Online Scheduling System does NOT cover driving skills tests for a commercial driver's license (CDL). To make an appointment for your CDL driving skills test, call your local CDL office. You must pass any required knowledge test before calling to schedule your skills test. No appointment is necessary for applications or knowledge tests.

How to Schedule a DMV Appointment

Technically, you can schedule appointments online and by phone only (and only for certain services and within cities that offer appointments); however, there are other ways to complete driver- and vehicle-related transactions that don't require visiting the DMV (or, at least, allow you to put yourself in line ahead of time).


You can schedule driver skills tests for Class C (non-commercial) and Class M (motorcycle) online using the state's Driver Test Scheduling System.

Be prepared to enter personally identifying information as well as:

  • Your driver's license, identification card, or instruction permit number.
  • Your preferred testing location.

Currently, you can't schedule any CDL transactions online, but you can use the state's Dash Pass system (see below).

By Phone

You can schedule driver skills tests for Class C (non-commercial) and Class M (motorcycle) by phone by contacting the location applicable to you:

  • Las Vegas area: (702) 486-4368.
  • Reno/ Sparks/ Carson City: (775) 684-4368.
  • Rural Nevada/ out of state: (877) 368-7828.

Dash Pass

If your DMV offers Dash Pass (check for locations), you can use the program to:

  • Make appointments if you're visiting:
    • Carson City.
    • Las Vegas.
    • Reno.
  • Join the line if you're visiting a smaller DMV location.
    • You can put yourself in line by calling, texting, or signing in online.

Refer to DMV Dash Pass for locations that offer Dash Pass, telephone numbers specific to your location, information on how to use Dash Pass online, and more.

What to Bring to Your Appointment

Because the NV DMV makes appointments for driver skills tests only, what you bring to your appointment depends on the license for which you're testing.

Review the documents you're required to bring for your appointment:

Again, if you need to complete any CDL transactions—including a driver skills test—you must contact a CDL location.
