Penalties

You will be subject to specific penalties if you accumulate a certain number of points on your driving license:

1. You will have your license suspended for six months if you accumulate 12 points or more over a two-year period on your current driving record. If this happens twice in five years, your license will be suspended for a period of three years. A notice of scheduled suspension will be mailed to you. You may be fined $500 or imprisoned for up to 30 days for driving with a suspended license.

2. Accumulating points on your driving license is also likely to increase your auto insurance rates. See our auto insurance section for more information about obtaining quality car insurance at competitive rates.

How to clear your driving record

The Nebraska DMV maintains a record of all the points added to your driving license. However, there are a number of ways in which you can remove points from your current driving record.

1. Taking a Driver Improvement Course that is approved by the DMV enables you to deduct two points from your current driving record, provided less than 12 points are on your record; and may also qualify you for a reduction in your car insurance rates.

2. While conviction remain on the driving record for 5 years, points for a specific violation no longer count 2 years after the violation occurs.

How to dispute a moving violation charge

If you believe you have been incorrectly charged with committing a moving violation, you may be able to fight the charge in court. See Traffic Tickets and Traffic Ticket Attorneys for more information.
