Online Services in Nevada

Do you need to tackle some basic driver or vehicle services? Before you gamble your time away with a trip to your local motor vehicle agency, consider relying on Nevada's online driver and vehicle services.

NV License & Personal Records

You can't drive anything without a license. And, in order to get one, you'll typically need to provide even more personal records to the DMV. You can track down and manage all the right documents online both through the NV DMV and with the help of third-party vendors.


  • Schedule a road test.
  • Renew, order a duplicate, and change the address on your:
    • Driver's license.
    • State identification card.
  • Order your driver history report.

Third Parties

  • Look up driving records.
    • Using a private party to order your records can save you the time and frustration that frequently come with going through the bureaucratic state process.
  • Prevent identity theft.
    • As the world races to digitize everything, your personal information has become increasingly vulnerable. Be proactive about keeping your private data private with the help of an experienced company.
  • Change your name.
    • Changing your name is a big decision, but getting your name changed doesn't have to be a big deal. Utilize the expertise of private companies who have been there and done that for thousands of happy customers.
  • Commission a background check.
    • Gathering all of the information necessary to put together a background check is exhausting—not to mention complicated. Skip the hassle by hiring a company to do the deep digging for you.
  • Obtain a criminal record check.
    • Law enforcement agencies can be difficult institutions to get information from, especially when they're dealing with ongoing crimes. An experienced third-party vendor will know exactly how to access all the files you need, and you can have them delivered without ever leaving the house.
  • Find court records.
    • Courthouses are notoriously slow moving, and rifling through all the paperwork they have can be time-consuming. Don't go blind trying to read everything there. Let an outside company compile the record for you.
  • Get public records.
    • These records may be public, but they can easily hide in plain sight. Private companies are great at sleuthing out what you need, and can do it for you quickly and easily.
  • Order vital records.
    • They're called "vital" for a reason. These documents are the foundation for most other forms of ID you'll need, and they're just a click away when you use third party vendors to help. You can order any of the following from home:
    • Birth records.
    • Death records.
    • Divorce records.
    • Marriage records.
  • Get your international driver's permit.
    • Planning an overseas trek is difficult enough. Let someone else worry about making sure you can drive once you arrive.
