Nevada Online Driver Education and Nevada Licensing Procedures
Congratulations on starting the process of applying for your Nevada learner’s permit or first Nevada driver’s license. Nevada has a “Graduated Driver License Program()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/nvdlteens.htm for Nevada teen drivers, and there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure that applying for your first Nevada driver’s license goes as smoothly as possible. So let’s get started.
The Nevada Instructional Permit or Nevada Learner’s Permit
When you turn 15 and a half, you can apply for a Nevada Instruction Permit. To apply, you’ll need to meet the following Nevada requirements:
- Be 15 and a half
- Complete a Nevada approved driver safety course
- Present proof of identity (U.S. issued birth certificate or Social Security Card)
- Pay the $22 fee
- And your parent/guardian must sign a financial responsibility section of driver application
If you’ve met all of the Nevada teen driver’s license requirements, head on down to your local Nevada DMV and submit your application. Then you’ll have to take a “written test()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/dlquiz.htm, consisting of 50 multiple choice questions, a vision test, and an initial road skills test. If you fail, the retest fee is $10. If you pass, then congratulations. You’ve just received your Nevada Instruction Permit, which is valid for 1 year.
Remember that with your Nevada Learner’s Permit, you can practice driving with your parent, guardian, driving instructor, or licensed driver who is at least 21. All passengers must wear seatbelts, and be sure to carry your Nevada Learner’s Permit with you at all times. After you’ve had your Nevada learner’s permit for 6 months, you’ll be ready for the next step in the Nevada Graduated License Program, the Nevada full license.
The Nevada Provisional Driver License or Nevada Full License
In order to apply for your Nevada Full Driver’s license, you’ll need to make sure you follow a few “Nevada State requirements()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/nvdlteens.htm before heading down to your local Nevada Driver Examination Station:
- Hold your Nevada learner’s permit for at least 6 months without incident (no at-fault accidents, moving violations, or alcohol or drug convictions)
- Complete a Nevada approved driver safety course which includes 50 hours of behind-the-wheel experience
- 10 hours must be night-time driving
- If driver education is not offered within 30 miles of your home, you can take a Nevada-approved online driver education class
- If you do not have internet access, then you must complete 100 hours of supervised driving, 10 of which must be nighttime driving
- Regardless of how you choose to complete the required practice hours, you must keep a “written log()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/pdfforms/dld130.pdf to be submitted to your local Nevada DMV. Your parents must sign this form
- The Nevada DMV also maintains a “Beginning Driver Training Guide()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/pdfforms/logbook.pdf to help parents and teens practice driving
If you’ve completed these Nevada requirements, “schedule your Nevada teen driving test()”:https://dmvapp.nv.gov/DMV/DL/DriveTestSchedulerPublic/DriveTest_Input.aspx by calling or online, then head on down to your local Nevada DMV again, where you’ll submit your application and the required materials. Again, you’ll need the following:
- Parent/guardian to sign a financial responsibility statement
- Nevada Instruction Permit
- “Proof of Identity()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/dlresidency.htm
- Driver Education Certificate
- Completed Beginning Driver Experience Log
- Vehicle with Registration and Insurance
Then you’ll have to take the dreaded road test. If you pass, then congratulations! You’ve just earned your Nevada Full License! However, you’ll still have to drive with a few restrictions for the time being.
Nevada Teen Driver License Restrictions and Penalties
There are several restrictions you need to be aware of regarding your Nevada Full Driver’s license:
- Everyone in the vehicle must wear a seatbelt
- No driving between 10PM and 5AM unless for emergencies, your job, or a school-related activity
- There are special curfews for “Las Vegas and Reno()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/nvdlteens.htm
- For the first 6 months, no passengers under 18 except for family members
- There is a .02 blood alcohol limit for drivers under 21
After you turn 18, these Nevada teen driver restrictions are removed. Freedom!
Nevada Auto Insurance Nevada Financial Responsibility Laws
Once you receive your Nevada learner’s permit or Nevada full driver’s license, you’re ready to drive—or are you? Any vehicle registered in Nevada must be covered by “liability insurance()”:http://www.dmvnv.com/insurance.htm. The minimum liability insurance coverage is:
$15,000 per person for 1 person per accident
$30,000 bodily injury for 2 or more persons per accident
$10,000 for property damage
If you are found to be driving without Nevada mandatory liability insurance, your Nevada license could be suspended.
Nevada Drunk Driving, Cell Phone, and Text Messaging Laws
As a new Nevada driver, it’s important for you to learn the Nevada drunk driving, cell phone, and text messaging laws. Like most state, Nevada has a Zero Tolerance Law for underage drinking, and if you are convicted of a Nevada DUI or Nevada DWI, you face addition penalties to those listed below.
Upon your first conviction of a Nevada DUI, you’ll face the following penalties:
- Jail sentence 72 days to 6 months
- $400-$1,000 fine
- License suspension 90 days
- Ignition Interlock Device installation
- Community Service 96 hours (in lieu of jail time)
- DUI school tuition with $150 enrollment fee
- Possible DUI Program or Treatment
And of course, further Nevada DUI convictions will result in increased jail time, community service, fines, and Nevada license suspension or even Nevada license revocation.
Currently, Nevada teen drivers are not prohibited from using cell phones while driving.

TeenDrivingCourse.com allows students the freedom to learn how they want, where they want and when they want!

If that’s the case, the Nevada driver ed course offered by TeenDrivingCourse.com makes an excellent supplementary learning tool that will further enhance the things you learn in the classroom.
- What information will be requested for ID verification while I am taking the Nevada online drivers ed course?
Although many states do not require us to verify the identity of our students, some states do. If your state has this requirement (we’ll let you know if it does), it will likely take the form of us asking you personal questions at various times during the course.
