The new online system provides access to any licensed physician, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner in the state of Nebraska, the same group authorized to approve paper applications. They enter patient information and provide their approval. Data is then transmitted electronically to the DMV.
At the DMV, officials review and accept approved placard applications, which are automatically added to the state's database. Permits are then printed and mailed to patients. The simpler process shaves as much as two weeks off the DMV's total processing time.
