Suspension

Your driving privileges can be suspended for multiple reasons. The most common suspensions are as a result of the following:

  • Courts can order the BMV to suspend an individual’s driving privileges
  • State law requires the BMV to suspend a person's driving privileges for certain violations - including failure to provide proof of financial responsibility (insurance).

Traffic Amnesty

House Enrolled Act 1141 provides a traffic amnesty program for Hoosiers who qualify. The program is available through December 31, 2020 and is managed through the court system. Traffic amnesty is an opportunity for individuals to apply for a reduction in fees owed to the BMV. For more information on how to apply, please reach out to the local court system. If you are granted a reduction, the court will transmit a copy of the order to the BMV. The BMV must receive the order directly from the court before any changes will be made to your record.
