The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles requires specific drivers to file an SR-22 certificate of insurance indicating that you have proof of financial responsibility.  Even if you do not own a vehicle, you must purchase a non-owner or operator policy under Nebraska law if you receive a license suspension or revocation related to a "court conviction, accumulation of points or some other administrative action."


Under most circumstances, you must maintain the SR-22 filing for a minimum of three (3) years from the date eligible for reinstatement.  The most common reason a person must file an SR22 certificate of insurance (high-risk insurance) is for a license suspension resulting from a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest.  Montana, however, also requires an SR22 filing for license suspensions related to an accumulation of 12 or more points on your driving record within a two (2) year period, a court conviction for no proof of insurance, court-ordered revocations, unsatisfied judgments, and as a condition of obtaining certain permits such as an Ignition Interlock Permit.

Nebraska Mandatory Minimum Insurance Requirements

Nebraska requires all vehicles in the State to maintain mandatory minimum liability coverage.  Under the Nebraska Revised Statute 60-509 the mandatory minimum liability policy is:

  •         $25,000 bodily injury per person
  •         $50,000 bodily injury per accident
  •         $25,000 property damage

Failure to maintain adequate insurance coverage can result in significant penalties, including the suspension or revocation of your driving privileges.
