INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles expects to process a record number of transactions on Tuesday, the first day that offices across the state were open for walk-in business.

A spokesperson for the BMV said branches had already processed 5,400 transactions by 10 a.m., just two hours after they opened. The wait times at some branches were more than an hour long.

Starting Tuesday, all transactions are available for walk-in service, except for driving skills exams.

The BMV expects the high transaction numbers will continue through the next several days, and maybe even several weeks.

Anybody doing business at a BMV branch should take the following advice:

• Bring water and/or umbrella to shade from the sun
• Traffic flow has changed, please follow directional signs
• Make sure to practice social distancing while waiting whether inside or outside a branch
• Masks are very strongly encouraged for all who are waiting in line and who enter a branch
