Your operator’s license and/or operating privileges can be revoked whenever you are convicted of a traffic violation and the judgment from the court contains an order to withdraw the operator’s license and/or privileges for the time period ordered by the court.
You must submit the following requirements to the Department of Motor Vehicles, 301 Centennial Mall South, P.O. Box 94877, Lincoln, NE 68509-4877 or fax to (402) 471-8288:
NOTE: Requirements cannot be submitted to your local Driver License Exam Station
- Surrender your Nebraska operator's license/permit to the DOWNTOWN LINCOLN DMV OFFICE ONLY at 301 Centennial Mall South, Lincoln, NE or sign an affidavit of lost license if you no longer have possession of the license - which can be faxed to the number above. This does not apply if the license has expired.
- File proof of financial responsibility, which is to remain on file at the Nebraska DMV for three (3) years from the date of eligibility for reinstatement – regardless of your state of residence. This is normally provided in the form of a SR-22 Certificate of Insurance - which must be submitted for each vehicle registered in your name. Failure to comply with this requirement would result in the suspension of the operating privileges for an Insurance Cancellation. The SR-22 cannot be faxed.
- Pay a $125.00 reinstatement fee. Payment must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles or be paid online. When submitting payment by mail, include identifying information (i.e. name, date of birth, license or social security number and current mailing address). Payment submitted by personal or business checks or not for the required amount will be returned.
Drivers who have had their operator’s license and/or privileges revoked, must test and apply for a new license.
