Ohio BMV Guide

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is a government organization that serves residents of the Buckeye State with all things driving related. It handles similar responsibilities held by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in other states. If you’re looking to get an Ohio drivers license or learners permit, register your vehicle or renew your plates, you’ll need to visit a BMV office or testing station at some point.
