Governor Brian Sandoval today announced the retirement of Troy Dillard, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in Nevada, effective October 23rd. Having started in 1988, Troy will leave public service after almost 30 years with the state. Sandoval will name a replacement at a later date.

“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 made a significant investment in providing additional personnel and technology upgrades to the DMV to improve customer service. I am optimistic that we will find a Director who will implement the measures that Troy and his team have put into place and provide direction so that the Department can modernize as a new generation of Nevadans begins to use its services.”

“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.”

Troy Dillard began his career in public service in 1988. He worked at 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, Governor Sandoval tapped him as the Director of the Department.
