LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – Renewing your driver’s license online. Since they started offering the service in September, the Department of Motor Vehicles’ Kevin Malone tells me 70,000 people have done just that. He adds, “ So that is 70,000 people directly not in line at DMV offices.”
How does it work? At the DMV’s website, you click through to “MyDMVNV”
”It’s very similar to setting up an account with a bank or any other online service. You have to enter some personal information. It can be a little bit tricky. I’ll grant you that with my-dmv. You have to enter your driver’s license number, the issue date from your driver’s license and a few other things and it all has to be entered accurately or it’ll kick you out.”
Two other helpful hints: don’t sign-up for a MyDMV account on a phone. It’ll work a lot better on a laptop or computer. Once you have an account, if you don’t use it for a year and-a-half, it’ll go away.

Buckle up, drive carefully and please PUT DOWN THAT PHONE!
