Driving Records in Nevada

Nevada Driver History Reports

A Nevada driver history report, commonly called a driving record, is a history of your driving violations, driver's license points, and traffic citations. It also includes car accidents.

To make sure that your record is accurate, you can order a copy of your driver history report from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Types of Nevada Driving Records

The NV DMV offers two kinds of driver history reports:

  • 3-year history.
  • 10-year history.

Most violations and convictions stay on your record for 3 years, meaning employers and insurance companies can view them during that time.

Information regarding any very serious violations, such as driver's license suspensions, can be accessed by all state DMVs for 10 years.

If your license is suspended or revoked and you have not reinstated it, the violation will stay on your Nevada driving record for an indefinite period of time.
