Will the Nevada DMV cancel my car registration and charge for reinstatement after my insurance lapsed?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 23, 2021

I live in Nevada and my car insurance lapsed for just six days. My insurer notified the DMV of the lapse. Does this mean the DMV will cancel my car registration and charge a reinstatement fee?

Thanks for the question! In Nevada, if your insurance has lapsed for one to 30 days, your registration will be suspended and you’ll be required to pay a $251 fee to have it reinstated.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
