In Nebraska, a driver safety course is not necessarily required; you have the option of either completing a course or completing 50 hours of supervised driving practice with a parent, guardian, or licensed driver who is at least 21. Please note that the 50-Hour Certification form must be obtained from the DMV and must indicate that at least 10 hours of driving took place at night.

Getting Your Permit in Nebraska
There are three types of Nebraska drivers permits for teen drivers. The requirements for each are as follows:
- Learners Permit (LPE): The purpose of this permit is to allow teen drivers to legally practice driving. You must be at least 14 years old to apply for the learners permit. You will need to pass both a vision and a written test in order to get this permit. A licensed driver must accompany you in the front passenger seat at all times when you drive.
- School Permit (SCP): The school permit is intended to let teens drive to and from school unsupervised. You must be at least 14 years and two months old and must have held your learners permit for a minimum of 2 months to apply. To apply for this permit, you must meet the Nebraska drivers ed requirements - successfully complete an approved driver safety course or have a 50-hour certification form signed by a parent, guardian, or licensed driver who is at least 21 years old. (At least 10 hours of night driving must be included.) The kind of testing that is required depends on several factors. Read the details in the Nebraska driver's manual.
- Learners Permit (LPD): This Nebraska drivers permit allows you to practice driving for a Provisional Operators Permit (POP), Operators (Class O), or Motorcycle (Class M) License. While you can apply and take the written test up to 60 days prior to your 15th birthday, you cannot officially receive this permit until you are 15. While driving with this permit, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21. Vision and written tests are required prior to issuing an LPD, and the written test may be waived for anyone who has previously held an LPE or SCP.
- Provisional Operators Permit (POP):This permit lets you drive unsupervised between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. You may apply and take tests toward the POP up to 60 days prior to your 16th birthday. However, you must be at least 16 years old to receive this permit, will need to have held an LPE, SCP, or LPD permit for at least 6 months, and must not have three or more points on their driving record during the six months directly preceding the date of POP application. In addition, you are required to have either completed an approved driver safety course or have a 50-hour certification form that is signed by a parent/guardian or licensed driver who is over the age of 21. Generally you will need to pass a vision, written, and drive test as well. Additional details and driving restrictions can be found on the Nebraska DMV site.
Nebraska Drivers License
Finally, to get your operators license, you must meet the following requirements:
- You must be at least 17 years old.
- If you are under 18, you must have held a provisional operators permit for at least 12 months and not accumulated 3 or more points on your driving record within the past 12 months.
- Under these circumstances, the written and drive tests are waived.
