The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has suspended late registration fees but that's not the only change that came after Governor Holcomb's Executive Order issued on Thursday, March 19th. The changes are intended to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the public as well as BMV employees.

According to a statement published at IN.gov, the changes are in place for the next 60 days. Here are some of the changes:

If you are unable to renew your registration online, the BMV will wave fees.

The following administrative penalty fees will be waived:

  • $6 for late driver’s license or identification card renewals
  • $15 for late vehicle registration renewals
  • $30 for late title transactions
  • $15 for late ORV and snowmobile registration renewals
  • $10 for late salvage titles

The usual credit card fee of $1 plus 1.99%, as allowed by Indiana law, has also been waived. Other changes include:

  • A BMV employee will be at the entrance of every branch
    Employee will confirm transaction need and limit the number of customers inside the building to 20
  • The number of chairs in the lobby will be reduced to reinforce the quantity of customers
  • No more than 20 chairs for customers spaced at least 6 feet apart
  • The use of Examiner terminals will be limited to every other terminal
    This provides an empty space between each tester
