INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is making it easier for residents who want to have their driver's licenses reinstated.
Commissioner Don Snemis announced Thursday that the BMV will begin a "relief" program allowing drivers to pay smaller fees to get their driving privileges restored.
Drivers will get half off the cost of reinstatement if their privileges were suspended for driving without insurance.
Snemis said that more than 250,000 drivers owe the BMV more than $118 million in reinstatement fees that are at least one year old.
Beginning Monday, drivers will be able to check their account online to see if they can qualify for the reduced fee.
