My deceased mother's estate qualifies for the small estate affidavit procedure in California. However the vehicle is titled in Nevada. The Nevada DMV will not accept the affidavit for a transfer of title to me without a California Probate Court order.
Estate Planning Attorney
Ask the Nevada DMV what their small estate procedure is (they likely have a form) and use their process instead of CA's process. You should not need to go to probate court if that is the only asset in the estate.

You also might try re-posting this with a Nevada location.
A small ancillary probate may be necessary, but try re-posting and calling the Nevada DMV.
