Losing your license―or having it stolen―can be a frustrating experience. And, it can be a little scary, too.
To replace your license, visit any license agency with:
- Proof of identification
- Proof of Social Security number
- Proof of lawful status in the U.S.
- Two documents proving your Indiana address
- Payment for $10 duplicate license fee
The Bureau of Motor Vehicle's (BMV) provides a list of acceptable documents.
Save time and order a duplicate license online. You will need to log in with your driver license number and either the last four digits of your Social Security number or Federal identification number.
Losing a license while outside your home state can be quite disconcerting. Should this happen to you, you can request a verification letter from the state. Simply download and complete Form 54580, and then send it to the following address as soon as possible:
- Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles
- Photo-Exempt Request
- 531 Virginia Ave.
- Indianapolis, IN 46203
It will take about a week to process your request.
When you return to Indiana, you can then apply for a replacement license by following the procedure explained at the beginning of this article.
