ADDENDUM TO EXEMPTION APPLICATION
Indiana Residents

It has come to our attention that Indiana does not include crashes on motor vehicle reports unless you did not have insurance at the time of the crash, or the crash resulted in a suspension of driving privileges. Therefore, you must request a search through the Indiana State Police to verify whether or not you have been involved in any crashes during your application review period. Please follow these steps to request your crash record search:

  1. Send a certified check or money order (no personal checks) for $25, payable to:

LexisNexis
142 North Main Street
Martinsville, IN 46151
(866) 215-2771

2. Enclose a copy of this addendum to the exemption application for Indiana residents.

3. Enclose a copy of the front and back sides of your Indiana driver’s license or commercial driver’s license.

4. Enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.

If the Indiana State Police find you were not involved in any crashes, you must send us a copy of the document stating there was no crash involvement. If the police do find that you were involved in one or more crashes, you must send us copies of all crash reports. Please note that you must submit crash reports for both commercial and non-commercial crashes.
