BMV Services in Ohio

Registrations, tags, titles, and driver's licenses are all handled by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Although the BMV is in charge of all tasks, it has numerous offices across the state. Depending on your needs, you can go to a County Clerk of Courts Title Office, Driver Exam Station, or Deputy Registrar License Agency. These offices operate at different hours and days of the week. Therefore, you should check the BMV locations and hours of operation before visiting. Otherwise, you can arrive at a closed office and have to come back another day. 

Schedule Your Driver Test Online

You should take advantage of the online scheduling option for driver's exams because the BMV can be busy. You can schedule an exam at an exam station using the online form. Then, when you show up in person, you won't have to worry about dealing with a long wait. 

Online Services

There are some online services offered by the Ohio BMV. If you want to avoid going to the BMV, use these online services. You can:

  • Update your address or change your mailing address
  • Renew, replace, or exchange your license plates
  • Pay your reinstatement fees in case your license has been suspended
  • Register your next of kin or emergency contact for law enforcement to contact in case of an emergency
  • Register to be an organ donor
  • Check or modify your CDL self-certification

You must go in person to complete the other tasks.
