Amateur Radio Plates are available through the Department of Motor Vehicles to any person who holds a valid Amateur Radio Station License issued by the Federal Communications Commission.

The plates are inscribed with the applicant's official amateur radio call letters and are issued in lieu of regular plates. Amateur Radio Plates may be placed on motor vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, semitrailers and cabin trailers.

Applicants must have a Nebraska Certificate of Title issued in their name, or in the event the vehicle is leased or non-resident military, the name of the applicant must appear on the registration of the vehicle.

Only one motor vehicle or trailer owned or leased by the applicant may be registered with an Amateur Radio Plate at any one time.

A photocopy of the applicant's valid Amateur Radio Station License must accompany the application.

Once the application is processed, the applicant will receive notification from the Department of Motor Vehicles advising them of the date the plate will be available at their County Treasurer's office to be registered to their vehicle. The applicant must show his/her valid Amateur Radio Station License to their County Treasurer before plates can be registered.

The fee for a set of Amateur Radio Plates is $5.00 in addition to any other applicable registration fees and taxes and is paid to the County Treasurer at the time of initial registration and annually when the registration is renewed.

Amateur Radio License Plates do not afford the registered owner any special parking priveleges.

A completed application and a photocopy of the applicant's Amateur Radio Station License should be submitted to:
Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles Driver and Vehicle Records Division
PO Box 94789
Lincoln, NE 68509-4789
