COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles announced Monday that its COVID-19 extensions are ending soon.

The BMV is urging anyone with an expiration date of March 9, 2020 or later to renew soon. If you're planning on heading to a deputy registrar office, you can "get in line, online" by clicking here.

Officials with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles suggest getting it taken care of sooner rather than later to avoid a rush as the deadline approaches.

“A lot of people did take advantage of that extension. Several hundred thousand people in addition to the folks would’ve had to come in anyways to renew,” said state registrar for Motor Vehicles Charlie Norman. “With that being said, we want people to be thoughtful and consider going ahead of that deadline. As we get closer to the end there will certainly be a rush.”
