Nevada law requires drivers to carry a minimum amount of insurance coverage. If your insurance has lapsed, you risk the suspension of your driver’s license and fines that compound as time passes. Fines for a first offense can reach $1,000 plus a license reinstatement fee of $251.
After 90 days without coverage, the Department of Motor Vehicles considers you an unsafe driver and imposes additional requirements, including the penalty of having a high-risk notation on your driving record for the next three years. This almost certainly means higher insurance rates, if an insurer will cover you at all. It’s a vicious cycle, and the only way out may be with the help of a lawyer.
The Risk Of Driving Without A License
Likewise, Nevada law is not lenient with individuals who drive without a license. The fines and other penalties are steep. If your license is simply invalid — i.e. if you failed to renew it — you may still face misdemeanor charges and fines of up to $500. If you attempt to drive while your license has been revoked, your fines may be as high as $1,000, and you may face time in jail.
