Great Potential - But Libraries Need Some of This $$

Indianapolis - Hoosiers are making good use of registering their vehicles online.

So far this year 500,000 Hoosiers have completed BMV registrations online, saving $2.5 million. The BMV offered a $5 discount to encourage on line registration and it appears to be working.

Commissioner Ron Stiver announced the next step Monday.

"Surveying our customers we found 17 percent of Hoosiers don't have access to a personal computer," Stiver said, announcing "a partnership with 3,500 computers at 462 libraries across the state which will now offer materials and guides creating greater awareness around the $5 discount for public library customers."

Historically online registration at the BMV hovered around six percent. It skyrocketed this year to 25 percent.
