FAQ's for Drivers in Carson City, NV

driver’s frequently asked question in Carson City

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Carson City, NV?

Every state requires drivers to have a minimum amount of liability coverage. Nevada drivers are required to carry liability insurance to pay for damages and injuries inflicted on someone else in an auto accident.

  • $15,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; The minimum coverage amount for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  • $30,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; The minimum requirement to cover two or more persons hurt or killed in an accident
  • $10,000; Property damage per accident; Coverage for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

Nevada requires motorists to carry a minimum of $15,000 for bodily injury or death of one person and $30,000 for bodily injury or death of two or more persons in any one accident. Drivers must also carry $10,000 to cover property damage of others in any one accident.

Nevada may require a lower level of coverage than some other states, but it’s risky to only opt for the minimum required by law. Not only does more insurance mean greater financial protection, but most lenders require full coverage and/or a variety of optional coverages before providing financing. Consider this when calculating the cost of your car loan.

What Is the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit in Carson City, NV?

Individuals cannot legally operate a motor vehicle in Nevada once they reach the following BAC percentages:

  • .08%+ at 21 years old or older
  • .04%+ for commercial vehicle drivers
  • .02%+ at under 21 years old

While the BAC applies only to alcohol, if a detectable level of any illegal substance is found, you’ll receive the same or greater penalties as you would for alcohol.

What are the consequences of being convicted of a DUI?

First-time offenders charged with a DUI in Nevada typically have their license suspended for 90 days and incur a number of fees that can top $200 or go considerably higher depending on certain factors, including whether they are of legal drinking age and whether their BAC was 0.18 or greater. They may apply for a restricted license after 45 days.

With a BAC of 0.18 or more, or at the court’s discretion, first-time offenders may need to have a breath interlock device installed in their vehicle for up to 3 years as well. Additionally, they must attend a Nevada DUI school and may face a short jail sentence or have to fulfill community service requirements. They may also need to attend certain programs or evaluations.

Penalties increase with each subsequent DUI offense.
