The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is using this webpage to provide information to court personnel, court clerks, attorneys and other legal professionals regarding areas of legal interest to those practitioners.

While the BMV intends the information on this webpage to be legally accurate, users should review relevant statutes and case law for final authority.
The following cheat sheets contain the list of convictions and judgments that result in classifying a person as a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV), the accompanying suspension periods, and information relevant to obtaining a probationary license.

These people must show the proof of financial responsibility by ensuring that an “SR22” form is filed with the BMV.
