WARSAW – The Indiana license branch in Warsaw saw a large line of people Tuesday, June 30, in preparation for administration fees being reintroduced.
The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) announced administrative penalty fees will resume July 1. In a statement from the BMV, “All Hoosiers with expired drivers’ licenses, permits, state identification cards, and vehicle registrations need to complete renewal transactions before July 1 to avoid paying an administrative penalty fee. Title transactions and new vehicle registration must also be completed before July 1.”
Administrative fees have been waived since March 16 to assist the needs of those who were not able to use in-branch services due to the public health emergency created by COVID-19. During this time, online credit card transaction fees were also waived. Those fees will resume Wednesday.
With that, a large line of people gathered at the BMV to get a jump on renewing licenses and vehicle registration in order to avoid the fees that will soon go into effect.
