Circumstantial evidence may serve to establish the operation or actual physical control of a motor vehicle. State v. Hanger, 241 Neb. 812, 491 N.W.2d 55 (1992).
A former Nebraska resident whose Nebraska driver's license is suspended or revoked and who obtains a license issued by another state before the period of suspension or revocation expires is not authorized to operate a motor vehicle in Nebraska until a new license is obtained when and if permitted by this act.

The gravamen of or the misconduct prohibited by this section and section 39-669.30 (transferred to section 60-4,186) is operation of a motor vehicle after judicial or administrative deprivation of the operator's privilege or license to operate a motor vehicle on the public highways of the State of Nebraska. Although the terms suspension and revocation were used interchangeably in this case, such misuse did not arise to the stature of sufficient prejudice to warrant reversal of judgment. State v. Jost, 219 Neb. 162, 361 N.W.2d 526 (1985).
This act refers to sections 60-401 to 60-440, and they have nothing to do with point system revocations. Buettner v. Sullivan, 191 Neb. 592, 216 N.W.2d 872 (1974).

After suspension of license, right to operate motor vehicle depends upon the receipt of a new license. Tyrrell v. State, 173 Neb. 859, 115 N.W.2d 459 (1962).
