The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles announced the launch of a new online application for the issuance of trip and fuel permits.
With the passage of a bill in the 2013 legislative session, the DMV was charged with creating an online fuel and trip permit process on or before January 2015 for interstate trucks operating through Nebraska. The DMV is launching the new service, one year ahead of the mandate and is available at dmv.ne.gov.
It is available for use by the public and will replace the current paper process administered by the Nebraska State Patrol.
The current process requires non-resident trucks and buses to stop at a proration station upon entering the state to purchase the required permits. To accommodate the transition to the new permit application process, both electronic and paper permits will be available until March 31.
Effective April 1, fuel and trip permits will only be available through the online service, and will be to be purchased prior to entering the state.
The trip and fuel permits application process can be accessed at dmv.ne.gov.
