Can I drive in Nevada with a foreign driver's license from another country?

Posted by Neil Shouse | Mar 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

Yes, people with a valid and current driver's license issued from a foreign country may drive in Nevada. Once the foreign license expires, then the person will need to get the foreign license renewed or...if eligible...get a Nevada driver's license.

Some immigrants such as green card-holders may be eligible for a Nevada driver's license. However, tourists and exchange students are never eligible for a Nevada driver's license. Non-citizens may contact the Nevada DMV and provide them with their status code to learn whether they may be eligible for a license.

Eligible foreigners who wish to get a Nevada driver's license are required to take a:

  • written test,
  • vision test, and
  • on-road test
