In Nevada, moving to a new house can be an exhilarating but logistically challenging experience. One of the things you should think about is if you need a Nevada moving permit, particularly if you’re importing a car from another state or have unique circumstances regarding the registration status of your car.

What is a Nevada Moving Permit?

A Nevada moving permit is a temporary document that enables you to lawfully operate a car on Nevada highways for a limited time. These permissions play an important role in these instances. 

Out-of-State Vehicles: when you need to move a car you recently purchased from another state to Nevada before the official registration procedure can begin.

 Unregistered Automobiles: If, even though your car’s Nevada registration has expired, you have to drive it for a short while (for example, because you’re taking it for repairs).

When You Might Need a Nevada Moving Permit

Here’s a breakdown of scenarios where a Nevada Moving Permit would likely be necessary:

• Relocating to Nevada: With an automobile you bought in another state, you’ve moved to Nevada. It can’t be driven until the Nevada registration is finished without a permit. 

 • Expired Nevada Registration: You must drive your car temporarily even though its Nevada registration has expired. 

 • Moving Within Nevada: Events involving inspections or repairs may occasionally need the issuance of a temporary permit, even when transporting your registered car within Nevada.

How to Obtain a Nevada Moving Permit

There are two main ways to get a Nevada moving permit:

Online using My DMV:

  • Go to the DMV website for Nevada. 
  • Go to “Registration and Insurance” and choose the option marked “Temporary Movement Permit – Non-Registered Vehicle.” 
  • The permission is one dollar. 

In-person at a DMV Office:

  • Pay a visit to a DMV office in Nevada (appointments may be required). 
  • Show evidence of ownership in the form of a title or prior registration. 
  • The DMV will issue a permit specially designed for you. Fees may differ slightly based on the type of permit.

Types of Nevada Moving Permits

Non-Commercial Moving permission: Generally, regular passenger cars that are not being utilized for business purposes need this kind of permission. 

 Business Moving Permit: Necessary for any commercial vehicle above 10,000 pounds in weight. Conditions and costs may vary.

Important Points to Remember

  • The duration of a Nevada moving permit is usually no more than 30 days. 
  • The price of a Nevada moving permit varies based on whether you get it in person or online. 
  • There are steep penalties associated with operating an unregistered car without a current moving permit. 

Extra Points to Remember 

A distinct type of moving permit issued by the county assessor’s office is required if your move involves a prefabricated house or mobile home.
