Step 1: Study and Apply for the Nebraska Operators Permit
To earn your School Permit or Provisional Operators Permit and eventually the Nebraska Operators License, everyone regardless of age must pass a written test on traffic laws and signs. 70% of test-takers fail on their first try and end up returning to the DMV.
A proven way to increase your chances of passing your learners permit written test is with up-to-date, online Nebraska DMV practice permit tests. Randomly generated questions test your driving knowledge and prepare you for the real deal.
Fifty online practice permit tests come free with our online Nebraska drivers safety course.
When you're ready, apply for one of the four Nebraska state driving permits at your local DMV office.
Nebraska has four types of permits that allow you to practice driving before getting a full unrestricted drivers license:
The LPE is valid for three months and may be renewed. LPE holders must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old. Applicants must pass the vision and written tests to earn an LPE.
Before you can apply for a SCP, you must do one of the following: 1) complete a DMV-approved drivers safety course or 2) present to the drivers license examiner a 50 Hour Certification form signed by a parent, guardian or licensed driver who is at least 21 years old.
Applicants must pass the written and driving tests to earn an SCP. You can waive the required written and driving tests if you complete a DMV-approved drivers safety course and receive a waiver from the course instructor.
You must hold an LPE for at least two months and be between 14 years and 2 months and 16 years and 3 months before you can apply for an SCP.
With an SCP, you may operate a car: 1) unsupervised between home and school (including to scheduled classes and extracurricular or school-related activities), traveling only by the most direct route, transporting only yourself or family member who resides with you; or 2) any time when accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old.
LPD holders must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old. You must pass the vision and written tests to earn an LPD. The LPD is valid for one year and may be renewed.
Before you can apply for a POP, you must do one of the following: 1) complete a DMV-approved drivers safety course or 2) present to the drivers license examiner a 50 Hour Certification form signed by a parent, guardian, or licensed driver who is at least 21 years old.
Applicants must pass the written and driving tests to earn a POP. You can waive the required written and driving tests if you complete a DMV-approved drivers safety course and receive a waiver from the course instructor.
You must hold an LPD for at least six months and not accumulate three or more points on your driving record during the six month period immediately preceding the POP application date.
POP holders may drive unsupervised between 6 a.m. and midnight. When accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21, the POP holder may drive at any time.

If you are under 18, you must either log 50 hours of supervised driving practice under the supervision of a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old or you can take a Nebraska DMV-approved drivers safety course.
