Explanation For Arrest Dates 01/01/2012 and after:

As of January 1, 2012, Nebraska has new DUI laws that allows offenders to waive their right to an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing and apply for an Ignition Interlock Permit (IIP) instead.

 

You must complete the following steps:

To be eligible for the permit, the driver must be a Nebraska resident, must be at least 18 years old and have been issued a license (Provisional Operator's Permit holders are not eligible for the Ignition Interlock Permit). To receive a letter authorizing the issuance of the appropriate driving document, the driver must submit the following to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Lincoln (not to the Driver License Exam Station):

  • Call the Department of Motor Vehicles at 402-471-3985 to verify eligibility for the Ignition Interlock Permit (IIP).

  • Once the IIP has been authorized - you can go to any licensing station in Nebraska to get the IIP issued. Be prepared to furnish the Examiner with proof of birth date and identity and two (2) forms of proof of residence. Take the issuance certificate you get from the Examiner to the County Treasurer, pay the $47.50 fee and have the permit issued.
  • Explanation For Arrest Dates On Or Prior to 12/31/2011:

    The court would need to order a driver to install an ignition interlock device of a type approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles as a condition of their conviction for an alcohol violation. Any such order by the court shall not take effect until the individual has served any required wait periods (refer to the Eligibility section below for help in determining eligibility and any required wait periods - check by arrest dates).

    If a Driver has been revoked for a period of 15 years or more for a Driving Under the Influence charge, they may apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles after serving at least seven (7) years of the withdrawal period - requesting the department to make a recommendation to the Board of Pardons for reinstatement of their eligibility for an operatorís license. If the reprieve is granted, the Driver is required to install an ignition interlock device of a type approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles for the duration of their original revocation period.
