Nevada's director of the state's Department of Motor Vehicles plans to ask the Legislature to pass a bill to allow 80 more self-service kiosks throughout the state.
It currently operates 27 kiosks, 17 of which are inside of DMV offices.
According to the Nevada News Bureau, the director, Bruce Breslow, who has been on the job for less than a month, said the "DMV in a box" program would "revolutionize" how the state offers services.
"That is our way of adding another 80 DMV offices to the state of Nevada without adding any new costs to the state," he said.
The program would be self-funded through what Breslow called "convenience fees."
Customers could go to strategically-placed kiosks throughout Nevada – at university campuses, city centers, retail centers – to access kiosks where they could pay for and print car registration tabs and driver's records. In the future, customers could renew licenses at kiosks and even take driver's license photos.
Breslow billed the program as a way to beat long lines and save a drive to a distant DMV office. If the kiosks become popular, they would further reduce lines at DMV offices since more people would be using kiosks.
The kiosks would also print a license plate decal immediately, whereas customers who use the DMV's website would have to wait several days for the decal to arrive by mail.
