BMV Changing Fees NOW
September 27, 2013 — Effective immediately, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles says it is lowering many fees following an independent review of its fee structure.
Indianapolis-based law firm Barnes and Thornburg reviewed the Indiana Code that governs fees BMV administers. It found that a number of fees are governed by multiple statutes, so the Bureau says that to simplify administration of fees and better serve the driving public, “the BMV and the Governor’s office will work with the General Assembly to address this complicated statutory system and eliminate future confusion.”
BMV Commissioner, R. Scott Waddell says, “Upon being informed of potential errors in administering fees, Governor Pence directed the BMV to conduct an independent review of the more than 300 fees the BMV administers. That review showed just how complex the statutes that govern fees are, and we found several errors that have led to both undercharges and overcharges on a number of fees. The BMV has taken immediate steps to address any overcharges by crediting affected motorists’ accounts and has corrected all overcharged fees going forward.”
