New Program Could Cut Wait Times At Ohio BMV
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The state of Ohio is testing a program that could reduce the time residents spend in line at the state's Bureau of Motor Vehicles locations.

Those needing to renew their driver's license or auto registration can check-in online and advance in the queue without physically waiting in a BMV office. After checking in online, customers will have a four-hour window to arrive at the office, check in at a kiosk and claim their spot in line.

The state announced Monday that the pilot program will be tested at 12 deputy registrar locations, primarily in the Columbus area. State officials say it could be expanded to additional bureau offices in other parts of the state at a later date.
