Deadline for Renewing your Drivers License and License Plates


Media Release:
Gov. Ricketts Rescinds Executive Order for Driver and Vehicle Requirements

LINCOLN -  Governor Pete Ricketts rescinded Executive Order 20-05 amending the due date for Nebraskans to renew a driver license or complete vehicle titling and registration requirements. Acknowledging the need to ensure residents have enough time to update their credentials, rather than the original 30-day notice period, the Governor has introduced a deadline of August 31st. This doubles the amount of notice originally discussed to allow residents to become compliant.

Driver License or State IDs - Individuals whose driver license, State ID, or permit expired on or after March 1, 2020 must renew their driver license or State ID by August 31, 2020. Online services are available every day of the week, and customers are encouraged to use online services as much as possible to allow those who must visit a driver license office to be served as efficiently as possible.

Vehicle Titling & Registrations - Individuals who purchased a new vehicle, or whose existing vehicle registration expired on or after March 1, 2020 and is due for renewal, must complete titling and registration requirements by August 31, 2020. For customers required to pay sales tax, failure to complete the process by August 31, 2020 may result in penalty and interest being applied.

Ignition Interlock Providers - The two-week extension period for ignition interlock customers to complete monthly inspection and monitoring requirements will no longer apply after August 31, 2020.
