New School Attendance Requirement for Drivers' Licenses
 

For students under the age of 18 who intend to pursue a driver's license in Nevada, there are important requirements that should be carefully reviewed in the DMV's handbook. The handbook can be viewed online here.  Among those requirements is a new student attendance requirement.

School Attendance Requirements:
Beginning January 1, 2015, State Law requires that anyone under the age of 18 who applies for an instruction permit, driver's license or driver authorization card must provide the DMV with proof that he or she meets the minimum school attendance requirements.

If you are a student who meet the minimum requirement of 90% school attendance, the new form will be available through the principal's office at your school.

If you are a student who does not meet the minimum requirement of 90% school attendance, you will need to demonstrate the necessary level of attendance for 30 days before you can request the form from your school.

The Douglas County Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) will have the authority to postpone or suspend a student's eligibility for a driver's license if truancy has reached a specific level. If you are a student who has been previously declared as a habitual truant (pursuant to NRS 392.144) and your license was suspended, you must provide proof that you are now meeting the minimum attendance standards for reinstatement of your driving privileges.

If you are no longer attending school but you are under the age of 18, you may still obtain the necessary form from a Douglas County High School if you can demonstrate that you have either earned a Diploma or a Certificate of the High School Equivalency Exam (HSE).   Once you have obtained the form, signed by the school district's designated official, you must take it to the DMV within 60 days of the date it was signed.
