(Columbus, OH) Same-day driver's license renewals will become a thing of the past in Ohio.
State officials announced plans Wednesday to deliver the new license cards by mail rather than issuing them same-day at Bureau of Motor Vehicles offices.
Here's how it works: you'll still stop by the BMV, present proper identification and pay for the license. You'll leave with a temporary license or ID, good for the ten days or so it will take to mail you a permanent card. The Ohio Dept. of Public Safety says the temporary cards will be valid for proof of identity and residence when voting.
The state says printing licenses off site would reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft, as well as save money. The change will take effect July 2.
