 License Suspension

Upon implementation of our new dealer licensing system, failure to maintain a bond or insurance will result in suspension of your dealer license. Suspended licenses will not have access to Plates on Demand. If your bond or insurance has an upcoming cancellation or expiration date, you must submit your new bond or insurance directly to the Division before that date in order to avoid license suspension. Do not wait until your dealer license renewal is due to submit your new bond or insurance. The launch date of our new system will be announced in a separate alert once it has been finalized.

 License Expiration

Upon implementation of our new dealer licensing system, expired licenses will be shut off from access to Plates on Demand the same day the license expires. There will not be a grace period. Please submit your renewal no fewer than 10 business days before your license expiration date to ensure sufficient time for processing. Your license expiration date can be found on your dealer license. The launch date of our new system will be announced in a separate alert once it has been finalized.

 Subscriber Accounts

Upon implementation of our new dealer licensing system, you will no longer be able to use your IN.gov subscriber account to log into Plates on Demand. Information regarding the new log-in system will be distributed to the primary owners of all licensed dealers. The launch date of our new system will be announced in a separate alert once it has been finalized.

  Interim Plates - Motorcycles

Upon implementation of our new dealer licensing system, you interim license plates for motorcycles will be issued using Plates on Demand instead of paper stock. Dealers may continue to use their existing stock of interim license plates until they run out. When you are ready to order more interim plates, you will need to purchase credits to be used in Plates on Demand. Credits can be purchased on the new Plates on Demand site. In order to access Plates on Demand, the primary owner of the dealer must set up a Microsoft Azure account and establish an online dealer account. A PIN is required to set up a dealer account – those will be distributed to the primary owners of all licensed dealers. Then the owner can assign users to manage this. Each user will need their own Microsoft Azure account. The user accounts will all be linked to one dealer account. The launch date of our new system and a link to the new Plates on Demand site will be announced in a separate alert.

Interim Plates Limits

Upon implementation of our new dealer licensing system, interim plate limits will be re-set at the beginning of a dealer’s license year. Currently, interim plate limits are re-set at the beginning of each calendar year. You will also notice that the number of interim plates issued will change to reflect the plates you have issued during your current license year, rather than calendar year.  Dealers can request an increased interim plate limit using State Form 56140 available on our website. The launch date of our new system will be announced in a separate alert once it has been finalized.
