INDIANAPOLIS -- To help ease the crush of driver's license renewals in 2012, the BMV is sending courtesy reminder postcards to customers urging them to renew online or early.
A problem occurred in one batch of postcards when the mail merged file inadvertently placed the wrong first name with the correct last name and address.
The information on the postcard is still correct and arrived at the proper address. No personal information was released and all BMV records remain correct and intact.
A total of approximately 58,600 postcards had inaccurate first names.
Customers are encouraged to take the opportunity to renew online, at mybmv.com, or at a license branch up to a year before his or her driver's license expires.
In 2012, 2.4 million driver's licenses will expire compared to 330,000 in 2010 and 260,000 in 2011.
