Renewing A Driver's License in Ohio Just Got Tougher

posted by Brian Combs - 

Callers to the Scott Sloan show on Newsradio 700WLW say confusion reigns at the BMV. Those going to renew their driver's license tell us they were caught by surprise by the requirements for new forms of identification needed in Ohio.

The state is now offering two types of licenses and the one needed for air travel requires more proof of your identity. The days of just presenting your old license for renewal are gone. Here are the new requirements as provided by the State of Ohio BMV:

Compliant DL–ID Card — Acceptable Documents

Obtaining a Compliant DL–ID card requires more identity documents than the Standard card.

DISCLAIMER: Using this checklist does not guarantee document acceptance or issuance of a driver license or identification card. Non-renewable, non-transferrable card holders can only be issued a Standard DL–ID.

Standard DL–ID Card — Acceptable Documents

The Standard DL-ID card does not require additional identity documents, unless the DL-ID is being issued for the first time.
