Most Nebraskans will have to renew their driver’s license and vehicle registrations by the end of August as Gov. Pete Ricketts revises an executive order that extended those deadlines.

The order waived expiration dates starting March 1 so that Nebraskans wouldn’t have to travel to the DMV during the pandemic. As the state re-opens, Ricketts says the waiver is no longer necessary.

Department of Motor Vehicles Deputy Director Julie Maaske says most of the renewals still don’t require a trip to the DMV because they can be taken care of online:

"We have seen a 55% increase in the use of our online services for drivers licensing, and a 47% increase for vehicle registration renewals," Maaske said. "This frees up time for our offices for those who must conduct their business in person."

The August 31 deadline for renewal also applies to new vehicle registrations.

Residents over age 72 still have extra time to renew their driver’s licenses, so this higher-risk group doesn’t have to go to the DMV for renewal.

Licenses for these drivers will be valid for one year after the expiration date printed on the license.
