INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles says it has cut the fees for driver's licenses after determining that it had miscalculated those charges.

But a lawyer who filed a class-action lawsuit over those fees says he thinks the BMV is still charging too much.

The BMV says the fees for standard operator's licenses have been cut by $3.50 effective immediately.

Attorney Irwin Levin says while he's glad the BMV is lowering the fees, he believes it should be refunding some $30 million in overcharges collected since 2007.

A BMV spokesman said no action has been taken on any refunds and couldn't comment further on that possibility because of the pending lawsuit.

The new fees range from $17.50 for a six-year driver's license to $14.50 for a four-year license.
