BMV admits it may have overcharged Hoosiers for driver's licenses

BMV responds to class-action lawsuit

INDIANAPOLIS - In response to a class-action lawsuit that alleged the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles overcharged as many as 4 million Hoosiers since 2007, the BMV admitted in a May 15 filing "it may have inadvertently overcharged" drivers.

Indianapolis attorney Irwin Levin filed suit in March claiming all Indiana drivers under the age of 75 who obtained or renewed a license since 2007 were overcharged as much as $7 per license.  Marion Superior Court Judge Heather Welch later granted class-action status to the case.

Levin says drivers over 75 receive a different type of license and the BMV hasn't overcharged for those.

The suit seeks more than $30 million in damages. It claims Indiana has more than 4 million licensed drivers.
