Ohioans' New Drivers Licenses Will Come In The Mail

This is worth a read for Ohio-licensed motorists.

(Columbus, Oh.) - From now on, Ohio drivers will have to take some extra steps to receive or renew their driver licenses.

The state will offer two types of licenses starting this week: the standard license and the compliant license. Both have a new look with greater security and identity protection features.

A compliant license is meant for people who use airlines often and need to comply with new federal travel restrictions set to go into effect in October 2020. It will require applicants to submit several pieces of documentation, including:

  • Document confirming your legal name, date of birth, and proof of U.S. legal presence (birth certificates, passports),
  • Document confirming your social security number (social security cards, W-2 Wage and Tax Statements),
  • Two documents confirming your street address (paycheck stubs, credit card statements, hunting or fishing licenses).

Anyone looking to renew standard license needs to bring a former license or identification card to the BMV. 

Motorists will no longer receive their drivers’ license during the same visit to the BMV. As of Monday, all new licenses and ID cards will be sent out by mail about 10 days after renewing or applying.

More information about Ohio’s new drivers license and ID requirements and processes can be found at http://www.bmv.ohio.gov/NEWDL-ID/index.aspx.
