In Nebraska, vehicle services and driver services are managed by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV oversees the titling and registration of vehicles, plates, and vehicle records. It also manages driver services, including licensing, identification cards, learner's permits, commercial driver licenses, suspensions, reinstatements, and DUI interlock devices.
Vehicle registration and titling fall under the jurisdiction of Driver and Vehicle Records (DVR). To obtain or renew the registration for your vehicle, you can visit your local Motor Vehicle Office in the county in which you live. The hours and days for DVR offices vary by county, so check with your local office before you visit. For new vehicle registration, you will need to bring your original insurance, proof that the sales tax has been paid, and the lease agreement, if you are leasing the vehicle. For renewals, you will need your insurance information and the registration document that is about to expire. Once the information is verified and you pay the fees, you'll be issued your registration certificate, along with plates and validation tabs. Titles are also issued through the Motor Vehicle Office and need to be obtained within 30 days of purchase. You must complete an application, pay the fee, and provide proof of ownership at the time of the request.
To apply for a driver's license in Nebraska, you must be at least 17 years old and show proof of your identification and residency. You need to provide evidence that you have successfully completed testing or have held a learner's permit for at least 90 days. Drivers under 18 who have had a Provisional Operator's Permit (POP) in good standing for at least 12 months do not have to take the written and skills tests. Drivers over 18 with a POP do not have to take these tests either. A POP is a restricted license that you can apply for at age 16 with parental consent.
