La Porte License Branch

The La Porte License Branch suffered serious damage during a fire over the weekend. The BMV will be unable to perform transactions at the branch, located at 1505 Lincoln Way, Suite B, but the agency will set up its mobile unit at the location to handle credential and registration renewals only.

For other transactions, area customers are urged to visit other BMV license branches, including the following nearby locations:

  • Michigan City, 1724 East Highway 20
  • Valparaiso, 1361 Morthland Drive
  • South Bend, 623 South St. Joseph Street
  • Walkerton, 302 Roosevelt Road (Tuesdays and Thursdays only)
  • Knox, 1919 South Heaton Street (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only)

In addition to using nearby branches, La Porte residents can complete transactions here online or conduct BMV business by mail, over the phone 1-888-692-6841 or by using the BMV’s smart phone applications.
