Any Nebraska resident who operates a motor vehicle on the streets and highways of Nebraska must have a valid driver’s license or learner's permit. To obtain a driver's license in Nebraska, you’ll be required to complete a data form, a vision test and, in some cases, a driving skills test. The Nebraska DMV written test is designed to check your knowledge of road signs, road rules, traffic laws and safe driving practices. Everything you need to know is covered in the Nebraska Driver's Manual. The DMV written knowledge test consists of 25 questions, and you'll need at least 20 correct answers to pass (80%).
