License branches open for walk-ins with a long wait

Back To Front Page


Today is the first day since March 23 that Indiana BMV branches have been open for walk-in business, and the BMV this morning was on pace to process a record number of transactions.

“We anticipate these high transaction numbers will continue for the next several days and possibly weeks ahead,” the BMV said. “We are asking that you help us make this experience as safe and efficient as possible.”

Things to know:

-- By 10 a.m., just two hours after branches opened, they had already processed 5,4000 transactions.

-- Wait times at some branches are more than an hour long.

-- Bring water and an umbrella for shade from the sun. Be prepared to wait outside.

-- Traffic flow has changed, so follow directional signs.

-- Make sure to practice social-distancing while waiting inside or outside a branch. And be patient.

-- Masks are very strongly encouraged for all who are waiting in line and who enter a branch.

“As a reminder, many transactions can also be completed online through myBMV or a BMV Connect kiosk,” the BMV said. “The administrative penalty fee for expired licenses, permits, state ID cards, and vehicles does not resume until July 1. Title transactions and new vehicle registration must also be completed before July 1.”

“Customers are holding spots in line so our elderly customers can wait in their cars,” the BMV said.
