Indiana to extend licenses during stay-at-home orderMarch 24, 2020
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana will be automatically extending all state-issued driver's licenses and vehicle registrations as the state enters a two-week stay-at-home period ordered by Gov. Eric Holcomb to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Holcomb on Monday also ordered the closure of all state government offices beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's start of his order that all Hoosiers remain at home, except for workers in essential industries or needed trips for groceries and medicine.
Indiana's stay-at-home order will last until April 7, and Holcomb said it could be extended.
Because the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles' branches will be closed during that period, Holcomb also ordered an automatic extension of all state-issued driver's licenses and vehicle registrations, among other steps. He was advising law enforcement to refrain from issuing citations for both driver’s licenses and registrations that expire during his order.
The BMV said Holcomb's directive effectively extends the expiration dates of vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses and state identification cards without changing the expiration date printed on documents in an individual’s possession. It also waives late fees during a future renewal.
The BMV said, however, that several options remain for Hoosiers to complete transactions with the BMV despite the temporary branch closures. Those include online transactions through the state agency, mail-in renewals and the BMV's contact center, at 888-692-6841.
