Making your grocery list for next week? If your vehicle registration is due soon or you need to print a copy of your driving record make sure to add those items to your list! The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) and Kroger have partnered to bring a new convenience to the community with a BMV Connect kiosk inside the Kroger store located at 116th Street and Cumberland Road.
BMV Connect is a new concept in customer service which gives Hoosiers the option to complete over fifteen transactions including ordering replacement IDs, completing a driver’s license renewal, and much more. Folks who decide to use the kiosk to renew a vehicle registration will walk away with their sticker that day, no need to wait for it to arrive in the mail.
The new kiosk enables residents to complete various transactions without driving to a neighboring city to visit a BMV branch. “We are consistently looking for ways to improve our customers’ experience when conducting business with the BMV. Placing BMV Connect kiosks inside Kroger stores throughout the state allows our customers the convenience of completing various BMV transactions without interruption to their daily activities,” explains BMV Commissioner Peter Lacy.
The BMV began expanding the BMV Connect brand into Kroger stores during the summer of 2019 and hopes to open more locations. Currently Hoosiers can visit BMV Connect kiosks at more than 35 BMV branch locations and additional Kroger stores in Central and Northern Indiana.

Not all transactions are available on a kiosk including upgrading your license to a Real ID. Make sure to check for the star in the upper right hand corner of your ID or license and if you don’t have one make time to bring your paperwork in to the branch before the October 2020 deadline.
