Information about the current status of your Indiana driver’s license is available for free after you create a account. You will need your 10 digit driver’s license or ID number, the last 4 digits of your Social Security number and the zip code the BMV has on file for you. You can purchase and print a certified copy of your Official Driver Record on your account for $4 or you can complete a Request for Certified Records (State Form 53789) and mail the completed form with $4 payment to request information by mail.

Steps To Reinstate Your Driver’s License

Step One

The Reinstatement Requirements section on the official Driver Record shows the earliest date your driver’s license can be reinstated. The court telephone number and case number is listed on the Official Driving Record. Once you meet the court’s requirements, the court will send the information to the BMV. The BMV does not accept reinstatement information from individuals. If you have an administrative (BMV) suspension, then you should review your Official Driving Record to determine how to satisfy those requirements.

If you have a court ordered, indefinite suspension, then you must contact the court that has suspended you to determine who to satisfy their requirements. The BMV will not accept documentation on lifting a court-ordered suspension from a driver. The BMV will only accept documentation from the court, so contacting them before you call the BMV’s Contact Center should be your first priority. If you have an administrative (BMV) suspension, then you should review your ODR to determine how to satisfy those requirements.

Step Two

Your insurance provider must electronically submit proof of insurance as indicated in the “Reinstatement Requirements” box on the Official Driver Record directly to the BMV. Your Official Driving Record will indicate the insurance reinstatement requirement. If you had insurance for the vehicle you were operating on the date the violation occurred, you must have your insurance provider electronically submit a Certificate of Compliance (COC) to the BMV. Otherwise, if the reinstatement requirements state “Proof of Insurance Required (SR-50)” or “Proof of Insurance Required (SR-22),” you must have your insurance provider electronically submit an SR-22 or SR-50 on your behalf to the BMV. The BMV only accepts proofs of insurance submitted electronically from your insurance provider. ** Please allow 24-48 hours for the insurance submission to clear from your record.

Step Three

All reinstatement fees and/or tickets associated with the court in the county in which you received your ticket need to be paid to that court. You may pay reinstatement fees associated with the BMV online at, by mail or by phone at 888-692-6841. The exact dollar amount is listed on your Reinstatement Requirements section of your Official Driving Record, along with your reinstatement fee access code. You will need your access code. Choose option 2, then option 1. You may also pay by mail using the reinstatement coupon in the Reinstatement Notice. If you do not have your reinstatement coupon, then you may download the Reinstatement Fee Submission Form from the BMV’s website.

Step Four

Please allow 24-48 hours for electronic submission for insurance to clear. Depending on how the ticket or court order was sent to the BMV, please allow up to 14 days from the day it was received for processing. You can check the status anytime on your account or by calling 888-692-6841 and pressing option 1, then option 1 again. You will need your Indiana driver’s license or ID number, the last 4 digits of your Social Security number and the zip code the BMV has on file for you. Unless your driver’s license is expired, revoked, or invalidated, your driver’s license will be reinstated after all requirement listed on your Official Driving Record have been processed and satisfied. You may monitor your license status by periodically reviewing your Official Driving Record on free of charge. If your driver’s license was taken by law enforcement as a part of your suspension, then you will need to visit a BMV branch or you may be eligible to order a replacement driver’s license by logging on to your account.
