In Nebraska, if you have a valid driver's license and have obtained medical clearance from your physician to drive you need not take any additional steps. If you attempt to drive without medical clearance and you have an accident, your insurance may not cover the incident.

The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is responsible for the review of individuals who may have a physical or mental condition that interferes with their ability to drive safely. The DMV has a procedure that allows individuals to confidentially report drivers they believe to be unsafe, or who have a medical condition that jeopardizes their safety and others on the roadways. A signed and dated letter must be sent to the Director of the DMV, identifying the individual and describing the problems observed. The DMV will review the information as well as the individual's driving record. If the DMV finds sufficient cause, they will send the driver a letter asking them to appear for testing. They will also be asked to provide a medical statement completed within the last 90 days. If the individual fails to appear for testing, fails to submit the medical or vision report, or fails any portion of the driver's test, their license will be cancelled. An individual may challenge the decision by appealing to the DMV's Medical Advisory Board, and may repeat the tests at any time. For more information go to www.dmv.state.ne.us.
