In Nevada, all licensed drivers are required to carry liability insurance. Liability insurance protects you in the event you’re involved in a car crash that is your fault. Liability coverage alone is only possible if you own your vehicle and are no longer making payments on it. Our state minimum for liability coverage is:
- $15,000 for bodily injury or death of one person
- $30,000 for bodily injury or death of two or more persons
- $10,000 for property damage

If you’ve changed insurance companies or coverage during the verification time frame, log on to www.dmvnv.com and enter your current or previous insurance information. You will need to follow up online with the DMV to ensure your Nevada insurance has been confirmed.
If your insurance lapses, your vehicle registration will be suspended. Reinstatement fees and fines for a lapse in insurance coverage depend on the length of the lapse. A schedule is listed below.
If the lapse period is 91 days or longer, or if it’s your third offense, you will be required to carry SR-22 insurance prior to paying fines and fees and SR-22 must be maintained for three years. Third-offense reinstatements will result in a minimum 30-day suspension of a driver’s license.
SR-22 insurance is a form of liability insurance that allows the DMV to monitor the insurance of a suspended or revoked driver’s record, through paperwork received by the driver’s insurance company.
