The city has received numerous complaints from "snowbirds," constituents who come from colder climates and spend their winters here to enjoy the warm Southern Nevada weather. On occasion, these snowbirds have been cited by the Constable's Office for not registering their out-of-state vehicles within 30 days. The Constable's Office is a separate entity not affiliated with the city of Las Vegas, but we have been receiving calls. We have worked closely with members of the Nevada Legislature to see that this issue is resolved. As a result, the Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau has issued an opinion that says state law does not require snowbirds to register their out-of-state vehicles in Nevada, unless they become Nevada residents. As such, constables will no longer be citing snowbirds for not having Nevada license plates. If this problem persists, please be sure to contact the Constable's Office at 455-3404.
