Want to avoid long lines and the dregs of society that seem to accumulate at the Indiana BMV? Keep reading.
This is a post unrelated to Indianapolis real estate, homes, or the like. This is just a sweet little nugget of information for residents of the Indy area who read this blog. I was recently involved in a car accident, my car was totaled, and purchased a new (used) car. Well, when I went to register it (on a Monday) all the BMV’s were closed. So I hopped on their website to find out the hours for the next day and I found out that AAA actually acts as a satellite office of the BMV for basic transactions such as registering your vehicle. I found my nearest one located at 86th and Michigan and walked right in with no wait to register my car on a Monday. No lines, no waiting until Tuesday, no crazy people in wife beaters. Just a completely normal business like transaction in an expedient and pleasant manner. It was wonderful. So, next time you need a basic transaction from the BMV; skip the regular government offices and head for your nearest AAA. They do charge a $5 fee for non members, but that is well worth IMHO.
You can find a AAA office near you here.
