Checkbox icon Point Revocations


Your operator’s license and/or operating privileges can be revoked for accumulating 12 or more points within any two (2) year time period. Points are calculated from the date of violation, not the hearing or judgment date. Upon receipt of a conviction of a violation (in Nebraska or any other state), the violation is placed on the driving record and points are assessed.

The Point Revocation is for six (6) months for a first offense, driver’s who are revoked under the Nebraska Point System for the second time within five (5) years are revoked for a three (3) year time period.

Driver’s that are revoked under the Nebraska Point System can apply for an Employment Drive Permit and/or a Medical Hardship Permit if there are no other open suspensions/revocations/impoundments on their record.


Reinstatement Requirements

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

  1. 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.
  2. Successfully complete a DMV approved Driver Improvement Course consisting of at least four (4) hours of instruction - the course must be completed after the date of revocation.  Have the school submit a DMV Certificate of Completion electronically – this usually takes 3 – 5 business days after the course has been completed (this WILL NOT give you a 2-point credit on your driving record).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.


Testing Requirements

Drivers who have had their operator's license and/or privileges revoked, must test and apply for a new license.
