BPR Transition Coming Soon
December 28, 2015
Beginning in January 2016, the Indiana Department of Revenue’s Motor Carrier Services Division (MCS) will assume responsibility for base plate registrations from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) for companies with 25 or more commercial vehicles weighing 16,000 pounds or more, which will include power units or trailers.
MCS previously handled base plate registrations for companies with 25 or more commercial vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or more.
This change will streamline the renewal process for businesses with commercial vehicles. MCS offers renewal through an electronic process – both online and at walk-in kiosks at MCS. Online renewals allow carriers to conveniently manage business from anywhere, at any time.
If a carrier’s account is in good standing, the business can add a vehicle, register, and be road ready within ten minutes. Additionally, carriers registering with MCS will no longer manage stickers every year. Their plate is permanent, only needs to be renewed once a year, and only needs to be replaced if lost, stolen, or damaged. The renewal process will take place on a staggered month basis. Once a carrier is assigned to a month, they will renew annually during this month.
All base plates that will be transferred to MCS expire Feb. 29, 2016.
