A Nevada driving record is the report showing your driving history, including violations, driver’s license points, traffic citations and car accidents. To make sure your driving record is correct, request a copy of it from the DMV in Nevada.
Types of Nevada Driving Records
The Nevada DMV offers driver history reports of two kinds namely:
- 3-year history
- 10-year history.
Most convictions and violations stay on this record for a period of 3 years. This means insurance providers or employment agencies can view most of the information in this period. Information regarding any serious violations like driver’s license suspensions can be accessed by all state Departments of Motor Vehicles for a length of 10 years. Whenever your license is suspended or even revoked and you have not reinstated it, that suspension will stay on your Nevada driving record for an unknown period of time.
