Renewal/Change to Existing Registration
If your registration is up for renewal (expired or within 35 days of expiration), complete a smog check as required. To get the UNLV plate, you must visit a Nevada DMV office. At the office, remove your current plates and take with you along with proof of registration, smog check, and renewal notice. At the counter, ask to swap out your old plates with a UNLV plate and renew your registration.
