So I just sold a car private sale in Las Vegas. I will not be using the plates on another vehicle. I cancelled the registration online but it appears now I must surrender the old plates to the DMV. Is there an easy legal way to do this that doesn't involve 4 hrs at the DMV? Other states I have lived you just cancelled the reg and destroyed the plates (or kept them). Seems like an unnecessary step and burden that NV places upon the citizenry. What happens if I just don't turn them in? Do I go to jail for disobeying a ridiculously benign and unnecessary regulatory burden on my time?
