Checkbox icon Nebraska Point System

Under Nebraska law, committing motor vehicle-related violations will add points to your driving record. Accumulating too many points will result in the loss of your driving privileges.

Upon conviction of a violation, points are assessed to a driving record as of the date of violation. 

  • Convictions remain on the driving record for five (5) years. 
  • Accumulating 12 points in a two (2) year time period (counting from the last date of violation) causes automatic revocation of the operator’s license under the Nebraska Point System.

When convicted of a traffic violation in another state, points are assessed against a driving record as if the violation occurred in Nebraska. See "Compact States" for more information.
