Proof of Insurance and either current registration or renewal notice. Proof of insurance is the only mandatory item. Proof of your insurance is usually in our computers but not always. Therefore we always recommend you bring proof. We can accept proof of insurance on your latest technology/iPhone/Android/etc.
If you are arriving from out of state, take your vehicle and title to Vehicle Inspections for VIN inspection. The fee is $10. If you have a lien on the car (e.g. bank has a title), you will need to request the title from your lienholder before you can go any further. Go to our forms section to fill out our form and request your title, Customer Request for out of state title. They will send the title to us and we will send you a postcard informing you that it has arrived and to bring in your vehicle for inspection. After the vehicle has been inspected you can proceed to the Treasurer’s Office for titling and registration. If you already have the title go to the County Treasurer’s office (window 1) where you will obtain a new title. The car will then be assessed and you will receive your plates/registration from the Treasurer’s office. A more comprehensive and detailed list for new residents and people who moved can be viewed at I just moved, find more information on what you need to do (PDF).
Only dealers are authorized to provide "In Transit" signs. Nebraska dealers will provide them at purchase. If you purchased your car from someone other than a Nebraska dealer, keep the title, proof of insurance, and bill of sale with you when you are driving. You have 30 days to obtain plates from the date of purchase. In Transits cannot be renewed past the original 30 days. The State informs us that handmade "In Transits" are not legal even though you may see them on the street.

Nothing until it is time to renew your plates. At that time, bring in your current registration, proof of insurance, and we will lead you in the computer as a Sarpy County citizen. Be aware of your vehicle expiration. You will not get a renewal card from us but could get one forwarded from your previous county. Please check Driver’s License requirements for change of address (they are different).
Come in and we will produce a new registration for $6.50 or a new set of plates and registration for $14.50.
We can mail a new set or you can come in and pick them up after we verify the currency of your registration.
Thirty days from your retirement or separation date. The intent to leave the state at some time in the future does not change this requirement. If you do not have a Nebraska title for your vehicle, you will have to obtain one prior to registration as a Nebraska resident. The process is basically the same as moving in from out of state.
It demonstrates to us your state of legal residence which allows you to register your personally owned vehicle at the non-resident rate. If your LES says Nebraska then you are not eligible to register as a non-resident and this does not apply. If you have a leased vehicle you will also have to produce an LES unless you are a Nebraska resident.
