And if you’re a prospective buyer, a NV license plate search can show vehicles impacted by Nevada lemon laws. Our license plate lookups can also give you valuable info like available accident history, salvaged titles, liens—even vehicle damage caused by a fender-bender on Las Vegas Boulevard or damage from Nevada’s flash floods. 

Catching these issues before you buy may help save you from throwing good money after bad. And if you’re torn between multiple vehicles, we can help you compare them side by side!

Are front and rear license plates required in Nevada?

Yes, you’re required to have front and rear license plates on your Nevada vehicle, although there may be exceptions for some vehicles, including motorcycles and trailers, which only require a rear plate.

Seeing a vehicle with no front license plate? We can run license plate searches for any state, especially nearby Arizona, Oregon, Utah, and California!

With dual license plates, it’s typically easier to identify vehicles for law enforcement or in instances of insurance liability issues. Another benefit to having front and rear license plates? They make it easier for drivers like you to try and identify a Nevada vehicle you’re interested in learning about!

According to the Federal Highway Administration’s latest update in 2021, there are 2.5 million vehicles registered in Nevada (including buses, motorcycles, and medium and heavy duty trucks with an NV license plate).

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center, electric vehicles are becoming quite popular in Nevada, with more than 17,000 EVs registered in the state as of June 2022. Intriguingly, about 11% of Nevada households don’t own a vehicle, per the U.S. Census Bureau! 

With approximately 900 vehicles per 1,000 residents, there’s no denying that Nevadans bet big on their vehicles.
