What is the BMV Commission?
The Bureau of Motor Vehicles is required by Indiana Code 9-414-9-2 to have a Bureau of Motor Vehicles Commission (BMVC). The BMVC consists of five members, including the BMV Commissioner, who serves as the Chairman.
Here is how the group is made up:
- Four individuals, not more than two of whom may be members of the same political party, who are appointed by the governor.
- An individual’s term on BMVC is 4 years.
- An individual appointed to BMVC may not hold any other public office or serve as a state or local employee while serving as a commission board member.
- An individual shall devote as much time as is needed to carry out the commission board's obligations but is not required to devote full time to the commission board.
- In addition to serving as the chair, the Commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is also responsible for calling BMVC meetings.
This group meets a minimum of four times each year, once per quarter. The purpose of the meeting is to review BMV business and gather approval for activities as required.
BMVC meetings are open to the public and notice of the upcoming meetings is posted on the Public Notices page of the BMV website.
