DMV makes it easier to alter gender on Nevada driver’s licenses

Thursday, June 7, 2018|2 a.m.

. The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles recently made it much easier for people to change the gender noted on their driver’s licenses and recognition cards.

If an individual’s gender expression is different than their sex at birth, the state previously required a physician’s approval prior to changing an ID card. That action is not required.

Jane Heenan, the medical director for Gender Justice Nevada, said the old policy included more costs and stress for trans and gender-nonconforming people, pointing out a case where a person couldn’t find a doctor to accept the form and needed to spend cash on multiple medical professional check outs.

“Motorist certifies not need any sort of external consent or affirmation from doctor of any kind,” Heenan said. “It reduces the complexities of this process, which are currently extremely complex for individuals looking for to make these changes. Raising that concern is substantial.”

An updated motorist’s license costs $9.25 and a brand-new ID card is $8.25. It takes 14 to Thirty Days to get the brand-new cards, inning accordance with the DMV.

The DMV has actually worked to bring its practices in line with other licensing and records companies, including the Nevada Department of Health and Human Solutions, which altered its rules in 2016 to enable individuals to alter the gender on their birth certificate utilizing a self-declaration procedure.

“Needing medical certification of gender identity is an outdated practice,” DMV spokesperson Kevin Malone stated.

The DMV is also working toward adding an alternative on ID cards for those who do not identify as male or female.

“We are preparing to include a nonbinary gender marker,” Malone stated. “However, this requires computer system programs and substantial screening with law enforcement and other stakeholders to guarantee they receive the appropriate information.”

There is no date set for when the new choice will be offered.
