Gov. Sisolak thanks DMV employees, praises lower wait times

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — It’s something many residents like to hear, the DMV is reporting that wait times are going down even while demands are going up. On Tuesday, Governor Sisolak visited the Flamingo DMV location in Las Vegas to recognize workers for getting drivers back on the road faster.

Some of the ways the DMV is trying to get people in and out as quickly as possible is with the online appointment system, as well as changing the lobby management.

The agency says between October and December of last year, the average wait statewide was just about 40 minutes.

That number is down from nearly 70 minutes in 2018. While the wait times may be going down, the DMV says they are seeing more walk-ins. Nevada’s six largest offices in Las Vegas, Carson City and Reno served 22 percent more people in 2019.

“As Nevada’s population continues to grow, we must think creatively about ways to deliver more government services with fewer resources, and the DMV has risen to that challenge by working tirelessly to decrease average wait times by nearly half an hour for customers across Nevada,” Governor Steve Sisolak said.
