Temporary Delivery Permits

A person that owns a vehicle may apply to the bureau for a 96-hour temporary delivery permit to operate the vehicle without obtaining a certificate of title or registration.

A 96-hour temporary delivery permit is valid for a period of 96 hours beginning with the time of issuance and authorizes the person or the person’s agent or employee to operate the vehicle upon a highway for the purposes of delivering or having delivered the vehicle to any of the following locations:

  • A place of storage, including the person's residence or place of business.
  • An inspection station for purposes of emissions testing under IC 13-17-5-5.1(b).
  • A BMV branch or a location operated by a full service provider (as defined in IC 9-14.1-1-2) or a partial services provider (as defined in IC 9-14.1-1-3) to register the vehicle under this article.

A 96-hour temporary delivery permit may also be issued for delivery of a vehicle that is currently impounded. Proof of impound is required.

Any Indiana resident who has provided financial responsibility information and proof of ownership may obtain a 96-hour temporary delivery permit by visiting any BMV branch and paying the appropriate fee. Proof of ownership may include any of the following:

  • A certificate of title
  • A registration from any state
