Vehicle registration plates of Nebraska

The U.S. state of Nebraska first required its residents to register their motor vehicles and display license plates in 1915. All plates were made of steel until 1947 when aluminum plates were introduced.

Passenger plates 1923 to present

In 1956, the U.S. states and Canadian provinces came to an agreement with the Automobile Manufacturers Association that fixed the size for license plates for vehicles, except those for motorcycles, at six inches in height by twelve inches in width, with standardized mounting holes. The 1955 (dated 1956) issue was the first Nebraska license plate that complied with these standards.

County coding

Nebraska counties by license plate prefix

Nebraska established a county-coding system for its passenger plates in 1922. These one- or two-digit prefixes were assigned based on the number of registered vehicles in each county at that time.[1] In 2002, the Nebraska Legislature discontinued the 1922 system for Douglas, Lancaster, and Sarpy Counties.
