INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will resume administrative fees and penalties on July 1. Those fees have been waived since March 16 to help Hoosiers deal with the public health emergency created by COVID-19.

Now, all Hoosiers with expired driver’s licenses, permits, state identification cards, and vehicle registrations need to complete renewal transactions before July 1 to avoid paying a penalty fee.

Title transactions and new vehicle registration must also be completed before July 1.

Online credit card transaction fees were also waived due to the pandemic, but those fees will resume on July 1, as well.

Online transactions paid by electronic check, using checking account and routing numbers, do not incur a fee.

Hoosiers whose renewal deadline has passed or is approaching, or who need to complete a title transfer or register a new vehicle are urged to schedule an appointment with the BMV to complete their transaction prior to the June 30, 2020 deadline.

Schedule BMV appointments here.

The BMV continues to encourage Hoosiers to complete transactions online or at a BMV Connect kiosk if at all possible, or complete their renewals using preprinted forms and the U.S. Postal Service.
