The Indiana BMV E-lien System went live on July 1, 2022. This system will provide process efficiency for stakeholders engaged throughout the lien process. This page is dedicated to help potential service providers navigate the engagement and onboarding process for the E-lien System. In addition, it provides links to frequently asked questions.

Service Provider Information

At a high level, to become active in the E-lien System, each service provider will need to build their own interface to connect to the BMV. To support this connection, the BMV has created a set of technical specifications and established a collaboration site to enable service providers to make the necessary changes to their systems. Upon completion of an application and execution of a contract, each service provider will be required to demonstrate they can successfully process an electronic lien in the BMV test environment before they will be given access to the production system.

Below is a summary of the critical steps required for service providers and BMV to mutually execute. Upon completion of all steps, service providers will be live in the BMV E-lien System.
