Short-Staffed BMV Closing Branches

(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is the latest victim of staffing shortages.


The BMV is shuttering 11 branches statewide. The closest location affected nearby is the branch in Walkerton in St. Joseph County. The Nappanee location in Elkhart County is also closing.


Officials say the closures are temporary, while the BMV reallocates personnel. It’s due to what they are calling "unprecedented staffing shortages." With 12% of its employment positions open, the BMV says closures could last at least four weeks.
