All Indiana BMV branches will extend hours of operation on Monday, Nov. 7 and Tuesday, Nov. 8 to issue ID cards and driver’s licenses to be used for identification at a polling place. Branches will be open Monday, Nov. 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 8, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Branches will resume regular business hours on Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Branches will prioritize processing transactions that include new, amended, renewed, or replacement
identification cards, learner permits, driver’s licenses, and CDLs that do not require testing.

Customers are required to provide all required documentation to complete a transaction.

Customers will have the option to complete a knowledge exam if the branch has capacity to facilitate the exam and the customer arrives at the branch at least one hour prior to the posted closing time.

Customers who are required to take a driving skills exam to obtain or renew a license may choose to apply for a free ID card to use for voting purposes. The BMV provides these to any unlicensed Hoosier who is a U.S. citizen, who can provide proper documentation, and who will be at least 18 years of age on or before the next general or municipal election.
