Vehicle Identification Checks

People often wish to have their vehicle, watercraft, or trailer titled through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Occasionally, the BMV may require that a person have their vehicle, watercraft, or trailer inspected by a police officer before a title is issued. If the BMV requests that you have an Officer Inspection done, please come to the Bloomington Police Department, 220 East 3rd Street, to pay a $5 fee per item to be inspected.

An officer will inspect the vehicle, watercraft, or trailer at the Department or at another location within the City Limits at your request any time after the fee has been paid. Please have your receipt for payment and the appropriate form to be completed by the officer with you when the officer arrives.
