Grand Opening Set for New LaPorte Licence Branch Location


The LaPorte License Branch has a new place to call home.

BMV Commissioner Kent Abernathy, State Senator Jim Arnold, and State Representative Tom Dermody will be part of tomorrow’s grand opening of the new LaPorte License Branch building at 1301 Pine Lake Road.

The facility where the license branch was previously located caught fire in October. The employees conducted transactions in a mobile unit at the site for only a few days until repairs could be made to the building.

Plans were in the works to move to the new location prior to the fire, according to officials with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The grand opening is set to begin tomorrow at 11 a.m. CT.
