Troy Dillard, Director of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has announced his retirement. A Mineral County native, Dillard was a graduate of Mineral County High School.

He began his career with the state in 1988 with the Department of Public Safety until 2004 when he transitioned to the Department of Motor Vehicles as the Chief of the Compliance Enforcement Division. In 2011, he was appointed as the DMV Deputy Director and in 2012 was named as Director of that department.

“Throughout his time at the DMV, Troy has been an exceptional director and an absolute pleasure to work with. He is a tremendous public servant and I am sorry to see him go,” said Governor Brian Sandoval.

“This last legislative session, with Troy’s leadership, the administration mad a significant investment in providing additional personnel and technology upgrades to the DMV to improve customer service.”

“It has been a privilege to serve the State of Nevada for nearly three decades. It has been a very special honor to serve in Governor Sandoval’s administration and to help bring the vision of a New Nevada forward,” said Troy Dillard.

“The future of DMV services in Nevada will be forever changed and a revolutionary new way of doing business with the agency is just on the horizon due to the visionary thinking, support and actions of the governor and legislative leaders. I am most thankful to the dedicated men and women of the Department of Motor Vehicles for their relentless pursuit of providing ever improving service to their fellow Nevadans.”

Besides being a graduate of Mineral County High School, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Science from the University of Nevada.
