Indiana auto buyers now have 45 days to get title, plates

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana residents buying vehicles will have 14 extra days to get their titles and plates beginning Friday.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says the paper interim plates or temporary tags issued by auto dealers will be valid for 45 days instead of the current 31.

She said Tuesday that automobile dealers now will have 31 days after the date of sale to deliver a title if it isn’t be provided at the time of the sale. That’s 10 more days than the current deadline.

Lawson says the previous timeline was a “tight turn around” in some cases for dealers and consumers due to title transfers between banks and lenders.

Beginning July 1, consumers who don’t receive their titles within 31 days should contact the Secretary of State’s office.
