Nevada Law Requires Nevada Motorists to Replace Plates Every 8 Years

June 28, 2016

Nevada motorists will have to replace their vehicle license plates every eight years.

A bill approved by last year’s Legislature to address law enforcement agencies’ complaints about many plates being unreadable will go into effect July 1.

Department of Motor Vehicles officials say license plates fade from exposure to the elements.

They are supposed to be readable from about 100 feet away.

Nevada State SealThe Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that a new plate will require an $8 fee.

However, state officials are not applying the replacement law to blue-and-white license plates made before 1982 and plates marking Nevada’s 125th and 150th anniversaries of statehood.

Motorists with specialty plates that support causes will not have to pay a replacement cost because they already have a $10 levy for renewal.
