Driver's License Examinations
Driver's license examiners are at The Cuming County Court House Meeting Room in West Point every Friday, excluding holidays. Between the hours of 9:15 am to 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

Motor Vehicle Title Inspections
Motor vehicle title inspections are necessary when licensing a vehicle in Nebraska which has an out-of-state title. The vehicle and the title must be presented to the Cuming County Sheriff's Office for inspection before a Nebraska title will be issued.
Inspections are conducted at the Cuming County Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, excluding legal holidays. The inspection shall consist of inspection of the VIN plate, manufacturer's federal sticker, odometer reading, and other pertinent documentation.
There is a $10 charge for inspections payable to the Cuming County Sheriff's Office.
Domestic Court Orders
The Sheriff's Office requires certain information to effect service of a Protection Order. If the information is not provided, the chances of service are greatly reduced. Service is necessary on any ex parte order of protection before it can take effect. Please make sure all information provided in the protection order application is complete and accurate. If any new information is obtained, please notify the Sheriff's Office at (402)372-6019 so it can update its records. If a photograph of the respondent is available, it may assist the deputy in identifying the party to be served. The Sheriff's Office is unable, however, to return any photographs.
The Sheriff's Office will not call the petitioner when the Protection Order has been served. It is her/his responsibility to check on service by calling (402)372-6019 during regular business hours. Please allow time for the deputies to attempt service. It is advisable to wait until the day after receiving the order to check. Repeated calls during business hours will not expedite the service of the order which already has a top service priority.
If the Protection Order has not been served within 14 days after issuance, it must be returned to the Court. It may be issued again if new information is provided by the Court.
There are no service fees for the processing and service of Protection Orders.
Vacating the Order
A petitioner no longer desiring the Protection Order to remain in effect must petition the court to withdraw it. The Sheriff's Office cannot stop service attempts or return the order without hearing from the court that the Order has been vacated.

Identity theft begins when someone else obtains your
"identifying information." This includes
information like your name, address, date-of-birth, social security number or maiden name.
Those who obtain this information can then act as an imposter, using your information to open
credit card accounts, deplete your savings, purchase automobiles or apply for loans.
