INDIANAPOLIS — Pent up demand for Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch services has workers scrambling.

The BMV closed branches for nearly two months over COVID-19 concerns and restrictions. 128 branches have now reopened, but the demand for transactions that can only be made at branches is intense. And for now, you need to make an appointment before going.

Monday, BMV Commissioner Peter Lacy said 141,000 appointments are on the books. 2,000 appointment slots per-day are being added to help meet the demand. Bookings are currently being accepted through June 13. You can make an appointment at any branch, not just the one closest to where you live.

Here are the transactions available at the branches which are open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
