Under Nebraska law, different motor vehicle-related infractions will add points to your driving record. However, most drivers try to avoid receiving these points. Accumulating too many points will result in the loss of your driving privileges and/or increased rates for your auto insurance.
Nebraska's Point System Law awards points based on the severity of your offense. For example, motor vehicle homicide is awarded 12 points while operating a vehicle without a valid driver license is an offense worth one point. The following are the point values for some common violations:
- DUI (First or second offense) - 6 points
- Speeding (depending on where the offense occurs and how many mph over the limit you're going) - 1 to 3 points
- Willful reckless driving - 6 points
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian (resulting in bodily injury) - 4 points
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian (not resulting in bodily injury) - 2 points
For the complete list, see the information page provided by the DMV.
If you've accumulated 12 points in a two-year period, you'll lose your driver license for six months. If this is the second time in five years your license has been revoked under the Nebraska Point System law, you'll lose your driving privileges for three years.
If your driver license is eligible for revocation under the Nebraska Point System Law, you'll receive a certified letter with detailed instructions for the surrender of your license. If you fail to comply with these directions, you'll be fined $500 and/or imprisoned for up to 30 days.
Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
To get your driving privileges back, you'll need to complete a driver's education and training course. The course must be approved by the Nebraska DMV and consists of at least eight hours of instruction. You will be held responsible for any fees associated with completion of the course.
After you receive your new driver license, you'll need to maintain proof of insurance for at least three years. This usually involves having your insurance company file an SR-22 with the Nebraska DMV office.
