About Changing Your Address on Your Nebraska Registration
Performing a Nebraska DMV change of address is a process that you must complete whenever you move from one part of the state to another. If you fail to change car registration address information after moving into a new home, you may not receive renewal notices pertaining to your vehicle’s license plates or other important updates from the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Additionally, you may not receive your duplicate registration if you order a replacement at any time.
Typically, the steps you must take to change the address on your vehicle registration records will vary depending on the county in which you live. Some counties may allow you to change your address online, while others will require you to submit your request in person.

What are the requirements to change my car registration address in Nebraska?
Before performing an address change on car registration credentials, you must first update the information on your Nebraska driver’s license, identification card or learner’s permit. By law, you must notify the Nebraska DMV within 60 days of changing your address, or penalty fees may apply. However, you can typically change your address online or in person at a local driver licensing office.
When changing the address on your driver’s license or state-issued ID card, you must provide the DMV agent with two proofs of your new address. If you wish to purchase a duplicate credential that displays your new address, you must also submit a completed application, proof of identification and any other required documents.

Before changing your car registration address in NE, you must also remember to update your information with the United States Postal Service (USPS). Depending on your preferred method, you may notify the USPS online or in person. However, you must pay a small fee if you submit your request online.
You can change your address with the USPS as early as 30 days before your move, up to 90 days after. After submitting your change of address online or in person at a local post office facility, you may update the information on your vehicle registration records.
Note: If your address changes near your registration’s expiration date, you should consider waiting until you complete the registration renewal process to update your address.
Performing an Address Change on Registration in Nebraska
After submitting your DMV change of address form to update the information on your license or ID card, you must change the name on your vehicle registration receipt. To make this change, you must visit the treasurer’s office in the county in which you live.

Before visiting your county treasurer’s office, it is important to gather any required information that you may need to process your request. For instance, you will likely need to provide:
- The license plate number or identification number (VIN) of your registered car, truck, minivan or SUV.
- A description of the registered vehicle, such as its make, model, year and body style.
