Base Plate Registration (BPR)

Beginning January 2016, the Indiana Department of Revenue’s Motor Carrier Services Division will assume responsibility for base plate registrations from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles for companies with 25 or more commercial vehicles weighing 16,000 lbs. or more.

This change will streamline the renewal process for your business. Renewal will be done online ONLY, allowing carriers to conveniently manage their business from anywhere, 24/7.

If you are currently registered to go online and process International Registration Plan (IRP), then you are automatically registered for BPR. If you do not have IRP, you will receive step-by-step registration instructions.

If you have any questions about this change, please feel free to contact Motor Carrier Services at (317) 615-7340.

Online Application

The IRP and BPR application allows you to process, pay, and print your cab cards without ever leaving your home or office. In addition, you can renew your plates and process most transaction types such as add vehicles, plate transfers, replacement plates, and more.

The online application is now available.
