Change Address on License
Drivers that recently changed residences in Nebraska are required to notify the Department of Motor Vehicles as soon as possible. The state allows residents to complete this address changing request within 60 days. Failure to do so may result in penalties and late fees.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person
The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles requires you to inform them of any changes that are relevant to your drivers license, including name changes and address changes. To complete this process in person, you will be required to submit a few documents to an authorized DMV agent, such as:
- Proof of identity
- Proof of new residency
For proof of identity, you may submit your valid Nebraska drivers license, a United States passport, a United States permanent resident card, a Certificate of Naturalization, a Certificate of Citizenship, a valid and unexpired Record of Arrival and Departure in a foreign passport, a United States birth certificate, etc.
Acceptable proofs of new address may include any of the following: a utility bill, an official bank statement that was issued in the past 30 days, a recent invoice, a Voter Registration Card, a medical bill with your new address, a magazine subscription from the past 90 days, a recent pay stub, a valid NE car registration, a valid estate tax statement, a blank check, a deposit slip, a mortgage agreement, a lease agreement, official government correspondence, etc.
You will also have to bring a completed New, Renewal, Duplicates and Replacements, Permit, Class O (Car), Class M (Motorcycle) and State ID Card Date Form (Form DMV 06-104). This form must be submitted at your nearest county official for submission.
On the application, a motorist is required to fill out personal information that includes:
- Your full name
- Your Social Security Number
- Your current residential address
- Your current mailing address
- Your physical description
In terms of the driving license fees for an address change request, the costs vary, depending on the type of NE drivers license you currently hold. If you would like to simply update your address and not get a duplicate driving license, no fee will be charged. The types of acceptable payment will also vary, depending on the driver licensing office you go to in your neighborhood.
The busiest time for a driving license office in the state of Nebraska is usually until 3 p.m. on weekdays, therefore plan your DMV visit for late afternoon to avoid any delay.
Take note that once you have filled out the proper address change forms and your request processed, it will take up to 14 business days for your driving license with new address to arrive in the mail. Meanwhile, however, you will be issued a 30-day receipt that you can carry with you when operating a motor vehicle. If more than 20 days have passed, and you have yet to receive your new driving license, make sure to contact the Driver Licensing Services at 402-471-3861.
