To protect Ohioans against identity theft, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has teamed up with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to verify the Social Security number, date of birth and/or name of anyone applying for or renewing a driver license or ID card.
If the applicant’s name, Social Security number and/or date of birth do not match the information on file with SSA, no license or ID card will be issued until the applicant produces documents proving the information.
