House Bill 404 Extends Expiration Date of Driver Licenses, Identification Cards and Vehicle Registrations

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has signed Ohio House Bill 404, which extends the expiration date of driver licenses (DL), identification cards (ID), and vehicle registrations beyond December 1, 2020. Now, if a customer's expiration date on their DL, ID, or vehicle registration is March 9, 2020, to April 1, 2021, the expiration date has been automatically extended and will remain valid until July 1, 2021.

Many of the services Ohioans rely on at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) can be accomplished online at www.OPlates.com. If customers need to purchase a temporary tag for their car, renew their vehicle registration, order new license plates, check their driving record, or another service, they can take care of it online from the comfort and safety of their home.

If a customer must visit a location, they are strongly encouraged to use the "Get in Line, Online" virtual queuing system. This system allows customers to virtually get in line before arriving at the BMV, thereby minimizing the amount of time physically spent at the agency and keeping customers safe.

Note: You may be required to wear a face covering in accordance with local and/or state mandates when visiting a deputy registrar or driver examination location. Please bring a face covering with you to ensure you can obtain the services you need.

DRIVER EXAMINATION STATION SKILLS TESTING RESUMES

To schedule your driving skills test, please call 877-439-8378 or schedule via the Live Chat feature. Please be advised BMV anticipates heavy call volume for scheduling and appreciates your patience.

ALL DX locations still offer the maneuverability test, with only some of those locations offering both maneuverability and the modified in-car testing. Please be advised that the person taking the skills test must be accompanied by an adult licensed driver in the passenger seat for the entirety of the skills test, but that no additional passengers may be in the vehicle during the test.
