Indiana BMV says it might have ‘inadvertently’ overcharged for licenses

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles is responding to a class action lawsuit, saying it “may have inadvertently” overcharged Indiana drivers for their licenses.

Indianapolis lawyer Irwin Levin filed a suit earlier this year alleging the state collected up to $30 million more than it should have by charging drivers more for licenses than allowed by law.

The Indianapolis Star and WISH-TV reported Tuesday that lawyers for the state wrote in a May 15 court filing that the BMV is still trying to determine whether drivers were “systematically” charged more for their licenses.

The lawsuit alleges drivers were charged up to $7 more for each license than allowed by law. Levin is seeking to have that money returned to drivers.
