BMV to credit drivers overcharged for licenses

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's Bureau of Motor Vehicles says motorists the agency charged too much for driver's licenses will receive credit for the amount they were overcharged.

BMV Commissioner R. Scott Waddell said Friday in a statement that the agency will "immediately" credit motorists' accounts with the department for the amount they were overcharged.

He says the BMV believes it's "important to return the overcharge directly to those who have been impacted" in light of what he called the "recently discovered overcharge."

Waddell's statement doesn't say how many drivers will receive the credit.

The BMV said in May in response to a class-action lawsuit that it "may have inadvertently" overcharged drivers for licenses. That suit alleges Indiana collected up to $30 million more than it should have by overcharging drivers for their licenses.
