What You Need to ObtainYour First Driverís License in Nevada
There are six things you need to bring with you when you go get your driverís license. These things are your parent or guardian, your instruction permit, proof of identity (such as a birth certification, social security card, or passport), your driverís education hours certificate or a high school transcript showing a passing grade in a driverís education course, a completed Beginning Driver Experience Log (Form DLD-130), and finally a registered and insured vehicle.
The Driving Test
Once you meet all of the above criteria you can then take the driving test. There are three parts to the driving test: the vision test, the written knowledge test, and the driving skills test.
You pass the vision test with an eyesight of 20/40 or better. If you cannot see to that level without wearing contact lenses or glasses you will receive a designation of Restriction B on your driver license.
After the vision test you will take the knowledge test, which consists of 50 multiple choice questions. You need to get 80% or more of the questions correct on this test to pass.
The last step is the skills test, a live test with an instructor on the basic principles of driving. You must pass the knowledge test before you are able to take the skills test. You will need to register for an appointment for a skill test at a smaller DMV office, but some larger offices offer tests for walk-ins with relatively little wait.
Before you set out on your skills test your instructor will need to see documentation to confirm your car is registered and insured. The vehicle must be in the same class of vehicles covered by the class of licensure you are applying for. You cannot take the skills test with a rental car.
