Nebraska DMV Warns Residents To Beware Of Scam Phone Calls


LINCOLN – The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) would like to warn residents about scam phone calls from individuals claiming to work for the DMV. The department has received reports of such calls where the individual claims the DMV will recall or “cut off” the customer’s driver license, unless immediate payment is made.


The DMV will never call our residents to demand payment, while threatening to recall a person’s license. Communication with our customers regarding their driver license will always be initiated by mail. Should you have any concerns about whether a phone call you are receiving is legitimate, do not provide any personal information. Instead, hang up and call the DMV directly. If the call is legitimate, the DMV team member will have no objection.


If you believe you have fallen victim to this, or any other scam, please contact local law enforcement immediately for further advice.


Contact information for the DMV, along with a range of online services, can be found on at
