OHIO – In March due to shut downs from Governor Dewine shut down BMV locations across Ohio causing people to not be able to renew licenses, IDs, and Vehicle registrations. That time is soon to be over.
The BMV is now urging people to get in line before the cut off date to prevent long lines at the locations.
If your license, ID card, or vehicle registration (including plates and stickers) expired on or after March 9, 2020, your expiration date has been automatically extended until December 1, 2020. In order to prevent long lines at the BMV in the days leading up to December 1, 2020.
You can renew your vehicle registration online now and renewing your license or ID card in person soon. Please know things might look a little different at your local BMV and staff will be enforcing social distancing and facial covering requirements for everyone’s safety. You can minimize the time you’ll physically spend at the BMV if you:
- Use our checklists for a federally-compliant or standard credential to make sure you bring the right documents with you.
- Get in line online before you go. Please check our locations page before visiting an agency to ensure that agency is open.
