Folded Newspaper icon DMV Announces Submission Procedure for Motorcycle Helmet Law Waiver

LINCOLN – Today the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced the procedure for
Nebraskans to submit proof of motorcycle course completion to waive the requirement to wear a
helmet as authorized by the passage of LB 138 during the recent legislative session. This provision of
the bill goes into effect on January 1, 2024.

Nebraska licensed drivers with a motorcycle endorsement or Class M license can submit a scanned
copy of the basic motorcycle safety course completion to a portal on the DMV website at Upon review by a DMV staff member, a return email will indicate approval or
denial of the submission.

“The DMV is excited to give our residents a quick and convenient mechanism to provide proof of
motorcycle course completion,” said DMV Director Rhonda Lahm. “Customer convenience is a high
priority at the DMV, and this adds to the more than 30 online services the DMV offers to Nebraskans.”
Nebraskans who desire to waive the motorcycle helmet law requirement can submit their
information on the DMV website or provide the course completion card in-person to a DMV license
examiner at one of the field offices throughout the state.

Once the proof of course completion has been received and approved, it will be indicated on the
operator's driving record, which will be accessible by roadside law enforcement officials.
