Driver License & ID Card

Other Information

Social Security Number

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.
