(INDIANAPOLIS) (AP) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is urging people whose drivers' licenses expire in 2012 to renew them in 2011 to avoid potentially long lines at license branches.
The BMV says a record 2.2 million drivers' licenses - more than half of all those in Indiana - expire next year, compared with 330,000 in 2010 and 260,000 in 2011.
BMV Commissioner Scott Waddell says the agency is encouraging customers to renew their drivers' licenses early either online or by visiting a license branch.
Indiana law allows drivers to renew their licenses up to one year before the expiration date.
