The head of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is resigning effective December 2. Commissioner Scott Waddell did not give a reason for his resignation.
In a statement, Waddell says he believes Indiana‘s BMV is in a position to be “at the forefront of motor vehicle agencies” for years to come.
“During my time at the BMV we have continued to drive improvements in operational efficiencies and customer service with initiatives such as just-in-time license plate procurement and a more responsive center for phone inquiries,” he said. “We have also implemented new branch visit time monitoring technology and touch-screen computers for knowledge testing.”
But Waddell has also been in the middle of several controversies.
The BMV suspended its personalize license plate program earlier this year after Waddell was involved in a class-action lawsuit.
In the same month, BMV decided to reimburse customers who were overcharged for their driver’s licenses.
