It has happened to all of us, we forget that we need to have insurance in the state of Nevada before we are able to register our vehicles and waste precious time at the DMV. Make sure you have all of the required documents such as proof of identity, driver’s license application, your existing vehicle registration and your Nevada Evidence of Insurance card. Opening up a policy is pretty quick and easy here at Capital Insurance Service.
