We also investigate complaints against auto dealers and similar businesses, body shops, garages, emission inspection stations and driving schools.

We do not handle complaints concerning towing, movers or taxicabs. For a complete list of enforcement agencies, visit Vehicles in Business.

Business Licensing

The Occupational and Business Licensing Section issues DMV licenses to nearly every business in the motor vehicle industry: dealers, lessors, distributors, brokers, manufacturers, rebuilders, body shops, wreckers, salvage pools, transporters, autonomous vehicle developers, emission inspection stations and driving schools. Repair garages must register with the DMV.

Vehicle salesmen, emissions inspectors and drive school instructors are also licensed individually.

The DMV's Motor Carrier Division licenses the fuel industry and issues IRP/IFTA credentials.

Emissions

Nevada operates a vehicle emission Inspection/Maintenance program in cooperation with other federal, state and local agencies. See Emissions.

Emissions testing stations are privately owned and decentralized. Tests are required on gasoline and light-duty diesel vehicles based in and around the Las Vegas Valley in Clark County and in many parts of Washoe County.
