Ohio to Close Most BMV’s Due to Coronavirus

by | Mar 19, 2020 | Coronavirus Updates

Governor Mike DeWine announced on March 18, 2020, that 181 BMV registrar offices will be close at the end of business that day. Five offices will remain open as they are essential and are able to issue and renew CDL’s. As a result, Ohio drivers will not be able to renew their licenses. The Ohio State Highway Patrol, though, will not be ticketing for expired licenses while the BMV is closed. DeWine is also asking local law enforcement, such as the Cincinnati or Lebanon Police Departments, to follow suit. Drivers will still be able to utilize the BMV’s online services to conduct other BMV business, such as renewing tags or paying reinstatement fees.
