INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- After the BMV admitted to "inadvertently overcharging" as many as 4 million Hoosiers last month, the BMV has lowereed the cost of an operator's license, effective immediately.

R. Scott Waddell, Commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), issued the following statement addressing the BMV's alleged overcharges for a standard operator's license:

"We became aware of the possibility that the BMV could be overcharging Indiana drivers for an operator's license, and reviewed existing law to determine the exact breakdown of fees that make up the cost of an operator's license. We discovered a miscalculation resulting in a $3.50 discrepancy for the six, five and four year standard operator's licenses.

As a result, the charge for a standard six-year operator's license should be $17.50 instead of $21.00, a standard five-year license should be $16.00 instead of $19.50 and a four-year license should be $14.50 instead of $18.00. Effective immediately, we are reducing the fees for all operator's licenses accordingly."
