New license plates are likely in your future, according to Nevada law | Las Vegas Review-Journal

"Most Nevada motorists will have to get new license plates every eight years under a new law that takes effect July 1.Assembly Bill 484 passed by the 2015 Legislature and signed by Gov. Brian Sandoval was requested by law enforcement agencies because too many plates are unreadable or have lost their reflectivity to be viewable at night"

I can see the reason because the plates do fade away. Will mean a new plate design I wonder? I assume probably

And they don't tell you if the plates have to be picked up in person. It's not the $8. I just don't want to go to the DMV.

This seems like a reasonable request.

Be nice if you could get them in the mail.

We had had a similar law, but 7 years. They charged us $24 for that replacement. Eventually when convinced that most people don't keep a car that long, they changed it and now they must only be replaced when an officer stops you for some other reason and notices that they are hard to read. In fact, we can now transfer the plates to a new car, so we are starting to see used cars for sale on the lots with no plates.

Can't say that I'm particularly a fan of the sunset design, I liked the prior standard plate better. It looked decent with basically ANY color vehicle.

It will be interesting to see if they will mail them.

Many states I'm familiar with are 7 years.

Doesn't seem unreasonable to me. The desert climate is hard on surfaces of any types. If your headlamps are clouding, the sun and sand are doing the same things to your license plate.
