Your operator’s license and/or operating privileges will be automatically suspended when you have been convicted/found guilty of a citation for No Proof of Insurance. Citations for No Proof of Insurance are given to the owner of the vehicle – therefore:
If you did not own the vehicle you were driving, DO NOT plead guilty to the ticket.
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
- File proof of financial responsibility, which is to remain on file at the Nebraska DMV for three (3) years from the date of the citation/violation – 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 $50.00 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.
If there was insurance on the vehicle when the citation was issued, provide this office with a copy of the citation that was issued and have your insurance company provide the Department with a letter of verification. This letter must be on insurance company or agency letterhead, be signed by an authorized representative of the insurance company and the representative must include the title of the position they hold with the company (i.e. Agent, Claims Representative, etc.). The letter will need to provide your personal information (i.e. name, date of birth, current mailing address), policy number, policyholder, date of citation and it must state you were covered with insurance when the citation was issued. If you are the insurance agent or a representative of the insurance company - you can download an instruction sheet and a printable copy (fill in the blank by hand) of the Letter of Verification.
Upon receipt of these documents – the Department of Motor Vehicles will review the file and possibly withdraw the suspension from your record.
