After the Motor Vehicle Industry Licensing Board has approved the application, it is submitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles for issuance of the plate and registration. Applications may be submitted to the DMV by mail or in person and must include the appropriate fee.

First time issuance - $18.10 per plate
(receives plate, registration, December expiration sticker)

Renewal - new plate year* - $18.10 per plate
(receives plate, registration, expiration sticker)

Renewal - other than new plate year - $14.00 per plate

Repossession plates are issued for a calendar year and therefore expire in December of the year of issuance.

Repossession plates are placed on the rear of the vehicle and may only be used for moving motor vehicles or trailers for the purpose of repossession, demonstration and disposal of the vehicle.

*New plates are issued in Nebraska every six years. Next new plate issuance is January 2023.
