Nebraska Motor Vehicle (DMV) Bill of Sale Form


Updated on January 20th, 2021

The Nebraska DMV bill of sale form is a commonly utilized instrument when selling or buying a motor vehicle. It essentially provides proof that a transaction between two parties occurred, therefore, working as a receipt for the sale. Names of the seller and buyer, vehicle price, and a vehicle description are just some of the important details that are listed on the form. There is also a section for a notary public to sign off approving the validity of the document. The Nebraska DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) recommends that all participants in the private sale of a motor vehicle implement this agreement.

How to Register a Vehicle

In Nebraska, new owners must register their vehicle within 30 days of the purchase date. Whether you register your vehicle through the mail or in person, you will need to provide the paperwork mentioned below to your local county treasurer’s office:

  • The title signed by the previous owner.
  • A slip confirming the payment of the sales and excise tax.
  • Paperwork confirming the existence of an auto insurance plan (must present original documents if registering in person).
  • Payment for any costs associated with county taxes (use the Vehicle Tax Estimator to calculate your fees).
