1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many BMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to assistance in preparing official forms, the value added services and products you will receive include a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs; 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the BMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local BMV.

3: Via a BMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local BMV office. Varying BMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the BMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your BMV allows you to make a personal appointment.

Name Change On Indiana Car Registration

The name on your IN vehicle registration form needs to reflect your true name. In the event that you underwent a change of your name for any reason ‐ such as getting married, for example ‐ you must make the modification on your car registration. But there is no difficulty in the process. All you must do is give notice, and you have two different ways that you can employ. You can either go to a nearby office within the state of Indiana ‐ which you can find here ‐ and provide them with your ID and current registration, or you can send your request in the mail, also providing the state with your reason for the request.
