What Information Does My Nevada Driving Record Show?

A Nevada driving record will contain your driver's history. Included in the record are car accidents, citations, DUIs, and suspensions. Along with this information, your driving record will also show the points against your license.

What are Points on a Driving Record?

Under Nevada's demerit point system, a driver who gets 12 or more points on their driving record within 1 year will be punished with a 6-month suspension on their license. Demerit points are added to a driving record following traffic violations and certain criminal traffic violations.

How Do I Get a DUI Removed From My Record in Nevada?

The only way to have a DUI removed from your driving record in Nevada is by filing for a record sealing with the court. Nevada law permits DUI conviction records to be sealed 7 years after the case ends for 1st and 2nd offense DUI. However, criminal records may never be sealed for felony DUI convictions, which include 3rd offense DUI and DUI causing injury or death.

If you manage to get your convictions sealed, they will not be visible to potential employers, landlords, or anyone else performing background checks.
