DRIVER AUTHORIZATION CARDS
Nevada residents who cannot meet the proof of identity requirements for a standard driver's license or ID card may be able to obtain a Driver Authorization Card (DAC).
These cards authorize the holder to drive a motor vehicle on Nevada public streets and highways. A DAC is not valid as identification to obtain any state benefits, licenses or services or for federal purposes such as boarding aircraft or entering facilities where ID is required.
Driver Authorization Cards are valid for one year from the date of issuance. All renewals and address changes must be completed in person. You must also apply for a duplicate DAC in person at the DMV.
Documents You Will Need:
To apply for a Driver Authorization Card, you must meet the requirements in three areas:
- Proof of Identity
- Translations of any documents not in English
- Proof of Residency Status
All documents must be originals. We do not accept photocopies. Documents with an expiration date must be valid and unexpired.
Please call our office (775)348-0780, for an appointment
to discuss any questions you may have.
Special Parole Consideration for Spouse, Children and Parents of Members of the U.S. Armed Forces
Any Spouse, children or parents of active members of the US Armed Forces, or an individual in the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve or an individual who previously served in the US Armed Forces or the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve, are now eligible to apply for “parole” or “parole in place”.
- Those relatives who are outside of the United States will now be able to apply for “parole” to allow them to come into the U.S. due to “urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”
- Those relatives already in the United States, will also be able apply for “parole in place” which will allow them to continue to stay in the U.S. in one-year increments legally.
Absent a criminal conviction or other serious adverse factors, parole in place would generally be an appropriate exercise of discretion for such an individual. If USCIS decides to grant parole in that situation, the parole should be authorized in one-year increments, with extensions of parole as appropriate.
Any person who is allowed “parole in place” and has entered without inspection will be eligible for adjustment of status if he or she is an immediate relative.
