Some Nevada Insurers Failed to File Motor Vehicle Reports

October 29, 2010

The Nevada state Department of Motor Vehicles is notifying some motorists to check their registration status, after some insurers failed to submit required records in February.

DMV spokesman Tom Jacobs downplayed the effect of the lapse. He said it stems from implementation of Nevada’s Liability Insurance Validated Electronically law.

Jacobs told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that drivers who get postcards shouldn’t panic, and the DMV just seeks information.

He said motorists can also check the department website.

The law went into effect this year requiring motorists to show proof of insurance when registering vehicles or renewing registration. It requires insurers to submit records to the DMV at least every 15 days.

When companies fail to provide the records, the DMV lists drivers as uninsured.
