Nebraska Now Offering Online Renewal

The South Sioux City Public Library is proud to let their members know that they can renew their Driver's License online. We have a link to this service on our homepage http://www.southsiouxcity.org/library. From the Office of Governor Dave Heinneman"

Gov. Dave Heineman today announced that Nebraskans can now renew their driver license online through the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Nebraskans are eligible to renew their driver license, motorcycle license or state ID card once every other renewal cycle, or every 10 years, meeting certain requirements. The online service can also be used to purchase duplicate or replacement licenses and state ID cards.

“We are dedicated to utilizing technology, Gov. Heineman said. “This is an important step in providing more efficient, faster services that benefit Nebraskans.”

New cards are mailed to a user’s home address between
a week and 20 days. To be eligible for online renewal Nebraskans must be over 21 and must use the same name and address listed on their current license or ID card. Physical descriptions must also remain the same.

The fee to renew driver licenses and state ID cards online is $27.75, with duplicate or replacement documents available for $14.75. Commercial driver licenses require additional documentation and cannot be renewed online. Others not eligible for online renewal include those over 65, anyone who does not have a digital license or signature on file with the DMV, those with restrictions on their license, or whose license has been suspended or revoked. A complete list of eligibility requirements is available on the DMV website.

DMV Director Beverly Neth said, “We are so pleased to offer this new service to Nebraskans. We estimate that over 150,000 people will be eligible to take advantage of this new service each year. Having an online application for each of our main DMV
services will help us take the next step in our digital migration efforts by using email, mobile devices, and our website to communicate with citizens. These technologies are time-saving opportunities for Nebraskans and help us provide services at the lowest cost possible.”

The addition of online driver license renewal is the last DMV service to be automated online. The Click DMV website hosts more than 13 online DMV services, including license plate renewal, driver license reinstatement, ordering personalized and specialty license plates, and the practice exams for new Nebraska drivers.

All of DMV’s online services can be found by clicking the ‘Click
DMV’ link on the department’s website, www.dmv.ne.gov, or by visiting the Click DMV site, www.clickdmv.ne.gov.
