Reviews of Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles Locations and Hours


I just book marked your blog ( on Digg and Stumble Upon. I enjoy reading your commentaries.

Attractive section of content. I just stumbled upon your web site and in accession capital to assert that I get actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Anyway I

I like the way you make the posts. I think you can get more traffic to your website by making it a bit more visible on the web. I personally also have website and I increased traffic by using these cheap backlink xrumer service you can find in my homepage link. Have a great day :)

I just got back from the Seymour IN BMV after trying to obtain a new licence after getting my name changed. Since I was born in the UK, we do name changes differently, called a Deed Poll. The Assistant Manager, 'Kym' refused to change my name because it was not a US court order. Yet my social security card has my new name, as does everywhere else that needs my name. So I guess, thanks to the Indiana BMV (seymour), Even though I tried to get it fixed, I'm driving around on an illegal licence. I' think it was discrimination because I am transsexual because I came in to get my gender marker changed too. That didn't happen either!

I left that branch upset that such an important document in my life is being blocked from me so I can actually live my life like every other human being in this country.

I received my new license plate in the mail yesterday. The letters on it were RTW. Well in this state I take that as Right To Work and I believe that this series with the letters RTW was put in on purpose! I do not support RTw at all and I consider this as harassment!! I think that this series should be pulled. I had to pay another $10.00 to change the plate and if I should still receive a plate with RTW on it, I will have to pay another $30.00 for a specialty plate. I will not put a plate on my car with the letters RTW !!! The license branch needs to remove this series as it is offensive to many!!!

The Pine Valley branch is horrible. The managers are horrible. They argue with you about a title that I filled out with the seller, insisting that I am not to fill out the title, even though it has a place for my signature and printed name. They argue that I mutilated the the title. The managers are confrontational to the customers, insisting that they are wrong and only they can be right. They charge an exorbant fee for there so called title mutilation fee, and I offered to retieve the bill of sale which clearly showed the purchase price as well, and they refused, afraid of being wrong. For the future, I will make an extra attempt to go anywhere but Pine Valley, and better spend my time with personable people, who try to help and be true customer service representatives, rather than incompetent fools as Pine Valley truly exhibits.

tried to renew plate for my vehicles and bmv classifies them as commercial because they are listed as my living trust. i finally got a live person and he says you have 4 vehicles rioght? ok lets renew all of them . when i get the registrations one of them was for a vehicle i sold in may 2010 bmv says i cant get a refund and i need to go to branch to prove i sold vehicle what good was titles if i have to prove i sold it also now one of the vehicles i do have wont have plates bmv says supervisor will call me in 48 hours this is crazy customer service what so ever so i loose 88.00 for their mistake and still lost on one plate i did not get


CALL (317) 233-6000 - BMV's Call Centre

Push option 5 Identification requirements

Push option2 for all other erquirements/questions

then you will be directed to someone that is live and "should" be able to answer your questions.


call the 317-233-6000

It is obvious that this comment section is just to allow the citizens of Indiana a place to complain about the BMV. They have no intention of reading these comments and improving the broken system.

How many times must they hear that WE WANT TO SPEAK WITH A LIVE PERSON for difficult questions we have about titles, licenses, forms.

If someone has a number where a REAL LIVE PERSON answers with phone and is prepared to SERVICE the citizens of Indiana, please share it on this page.

Thank you.

(317) 233-6000 - BMV's Call Centre

Push option 5

Then Push option 2

If anyone from the Indiana BMV reads these comments, please add a feature to speak to a live person when we call you. I could have saved myself more than half an hour on a question that took less than two minutes to answer when I HAD TO GO to the BMV because I could not speak to someone on the phone.PLEASE!!!


I've already visited a branch (waited over an hour) and got handed printouts from the website with no further instructions/help.

Like many of the other comments, I find it essentially impossible to actually talk with a person to get a simple question answered. It seems obvious that the system is deliberately set up this way in order to avoid any real interaction with the peasants who actually inhabit the state. Clearly, the state consider us an annoyance whose only function is to provide tax money to pay the salaries of the state bureaucrats and politicians. This whole format screams this contempt for the average citizen/taxpayer in that there is much feedback from we the miserable taxpayers and NO responses from the people who run the BMV. It's like sending a message to outer space.

I am trying to talk to a live person and that simply is not a choice (and they don't respond to emails). Asinine. On Monday I am driving to Indiana to pick up a homemade teardrop trailer and need temporary tags to drive it back to Arizona. I am driving in on I70 and need an office west and south of Indianapolis where I want to set up an appointment to have the trailer inspected and get the tags. ANY SUGGESTIONS from anyone would be welcome.

I love my local BMV. When we first moved to Indiana I was so impressed with the personal service I received. The branch office was pleasant and charming. Since then ( 14 years ago ) things have changed. The personnel are still pleasant but everything within the IN. BMV us so micromanaged It's caused the branch to loose it's personal appeal. You have to call Indy for everything..what if I don't want to do it all online? I have waited forever on the phone to get a question answered. I can't even call my branch to ask a question or schedule a drive test for one of my kids. I think we need to get back to personal service!

The hours posted on this website for several of the BMV locations needs to be updated. They are not open five days a week, only three days and very limited hours. Had to call three locations to find one open on a Friday. How sad we are required, by law, to purchase plates, stickers, etc., but can't find a branch open enough hours nor days to do what is required.

BMV branches are open 5 days a week, not 3, Tuesday thru Saturday. A small number of branches are launching a pilot program in which 2 branches share employees and days. 1 branch will be open Monday,Wednesday,Friday the other will be open Tuesday,Thursday, and Saturday. The automated phone system is a bit time consuming to use but if you listen to all options and select the appropriate ones for your situation you will be able to speak with a person.

Yes, and then they tell you that you can not submit any paper work the courts have to submit it. Then you have to hope they do this and then you have to wait 8 to 10 days for it to be reinstated.

I would rather wait in line for hours then send this.

Here in Indiana our BMV is only open 2 days out of the full week. they are never there when you call. and when you are trying to find out something you are better off talking to someone off of facebook that know's the prices of things then try to find out anything over the phone or the website. I don't think it is to much of DMV falt but the government's falt as will.

And the backward state of Indiana gets more and more backwards. So, we'll employ people to renew license, but, we'll mail them to you. My plates expire today, how many times will I get stopped in the next two weeks for invalid plates? I'll sit there while they run my plates and my license, it really won't matter if I show the receipt, they've stopped me so, I'll waste 30 minutes or so while they find nothing. Some of you will say renew earlier. How about this? I already am. Ten years ago, all plates expired at the end of the month. Then they split up the expirations, so, I paid for a full year of plates and ended up with 11 and one half months of a plate. Maybe the state will be happy if I just pay for the next ten years in advance. Idiots.

I wish to talk with a real person. The automated answering system does not give me the option I need. How do I get through without leaving my personal information on this comment area. Will you reply to my comment or am I talking to just other folks who have been through the mumble jumble.

We have two Indiana Certificate of Vehicle Registrations with stickers that says (VOID). I don't think I can put that on my Semi trailer, but,


The automated system just says "goodbye".

The only telephone number I can find is the 317 233 6000 with the automated voice. No Good for anything.

I totally agree....What is it with the BMV that will not let you speak with a LIVE person. A simple questions is all I want and should not have to go to the BMV location to get this simple question only to find out that I dont have the information "they need". Its no wonder the BMV has a poor reputation. Get it together folks and make it simple for everyone and change your automated system to reflect the truth...that you cannot get ALL the information you need online or through your defective automated system.....GGGRRRRR!!!!!!!

Recently visited the BMV to renew registration. The wait was no time at all and

business was taken care of promptly. The only downfall was that the reg. stickers

will be mailed out to all instead of ' on the spot' renewal. Also, the self-service

terminals were perfect for those who have to wait up to the last minute, due to

insufficient $$ before hand. It appears that whomever has ruled for these changes,

was either brain -dead, on dope, or has received mucho $$$ for some very , very

inefficent ideas. These ideas certainly are not in the realm of helpful or efficient

for the IN drivers. Mailing out stickers cost the state $$ also. I thought the state

was wanting to get rid of many "SAME" committees, and save $$$ for other so-

called $$$ -eating frivolities. Hmmmm.

ya gotta wonder if the people at the bmv with rotten teeth and look like a trailer gave birth to them are operating motor vehicles themselves. been on hold for 45 min, Im moving in 7 days and need info. Ok cornbread f*** get off your butt, put down the meth and answer the phone

Just visted Princeton BMV. People inside but door locked, 2:00 PM. Small sign on door "Closed do to weather". It is raining. Give me a break. I bet they were all still getting paid. Can't waite untill we all have a government job.

I tink this is a great site to work off of

The site may be good but I don't feel the same about the BMV. I just emailed payment for renewed plates, got the new registrations for my cars in the mail today but NO STICKERS included! And NO humans are accessible by phone, just that awful automated menu, so Tuesday I STILL have to get out & go to the license branch IN PERSON & have them rectify THEIR error! Thank you for p*ss-poor service & NO "customer service" from an actual human being. How many people lost their jobs when BMV went totally automated?
