Nevada takes automobile insurance seriously. Uninsured motorists cost the state money and increase the costs of insurance for everyone else. For these reasons, Nevada has been more aggressive than other states in finding out if you have insurance. And the state will punish you if you don’t.
How Does Nevada Track Insurance?
In other states, the police will only know if you lack insurance after stopping you and asking for your registration and proof of insurance. Unsurprisingly, a motorist whose insurance lapsed could evade detection by driving carefully and never getting pulled over.
Nevada has made it much harder for drivers to avoid detection when their coverage lapses or they cancel the coverage. Nevada’s Live Program keeps insurance information on every registered car in the state. The program is constantly updated, so the state knows in real time whether you have insurance or whether you no longer carry it.
Insurance companies are required by law to provide the state with updated insurance information. Once Nevada finds out your coverage has lapsed, they will send you a notice and suspend your registration.

If you continue to drive without insurance and get stopped, then you will face pretty serious penalties. The precise penalty will depend on whether this is your first or a subsequent offense.
For a first offense, you can expect:
Second offenses carry more serious punishments:
Punishments increase for a third offense:
As you can see, it will be cheaper and less stressful to simply purchase insurance than to get caught driving without the minimum insurance.
Although insurance might sound like an unnecessary expense, you will feel relieved to have it after an accident. It will lift just one more worry off your shoulders while you focus on recovering from the collision.
