Dealers Handbook in Nebraska

Help for Nebraska Vehicle Dealers

Nebraska doesn't publish a handbook for vehicle dealers; however, the Nebraska Motor Vehicle Industry Licensing Board provides online information for dealers as well as an instruction sheet for completing the dealer application, and continuing with the rest of the application process.

The instruction sheet includes information about:

  • Fees, including your application fee and surety bond.
  • Turning in your dealership specifics, including the name, photo of your sign, and location. 
  • Insurance, including automobile liability insurance and workers' compensation insurance.
  • Agreements, including service agreements (if you don't have a service facility on the property), lease agreements (if you don't own the property), and franchise agreements.
  • Salespeople.

If you find you still have questions, you can always call the Motor Vehicle Industry Licensing Board at (402) 471-2148.
