Beginning January 2023, owners of vehicles registered as “classic cars,” “classic rods” or “old timers” will be required to hold classic vehicle insurance policies. All other vehicles in Clark County must pass a smog check in order to receive a Nevada license plate. Vehicles designated as classic cars/classic rods are not required to pass a smog check. However, they are limited to being driven 5,000 miles per year.

Over the past decade, Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles saw the number of vehicles in the classic vehicle category increase from 5,000 to 32,000…and many of those vehicles are not truly “classic” cars. They’re simply older vehicles that can’t pass a smog check.

What do I need to do?

“I have a Classic Car plate. What do I need to do?”
If you have a Classic Car, Classic Rod or Old Timers plate on your vehicle, you need to provide proof of classic vehicle insurance to keep that plate on your car. For all other vehicles, you will need to pass a smog check to receive a standard Nevada license plate.

“My car didn’t pass the smog check. Now what?”
You will need to repair your vehicle so it can pass a smog check.

“I can’t afford to get my car fixed, but I need to get to work!”
