the DMV web site at www.dmvnv.com.

Nevada teens are required to complete 50 hours of supervised experience behind the wheel, 10 of
which must be completed at night. You must document this on the offcial DMV form. Please refer to
Chapter 4 of this handbook for information about driving at night.

There are three options for meeting your driver’s education requirements:

1. Take driver’s education at any locally offered and DMV-approved school;
2. Take driver’s education online with a DMV-approved school; or
3. If you are not within 30 miles of a DMV-approved school, and it is not possible for you to
access the internet for a driver’s education class, you would need to complete 100 hours of
behind-the-wheel driving experience, 10 hours of which must be completed in the dark. If you
are applying for a motorcycle license, all 100 hours of driving experience must be completed
during daylight hours only. Please refer to Chapter 4 of this handbook for information about
night driving.

Minors must also remain free of any at-fault accidents, moving violation convictions and any type of
alcohol or drug conviction for six months prior to receiving a driver’s license.
