CLEVELAND — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has signed Ohio House Bill 404, which extends the expiration date of driver licenses, identification cards and vehicle registrations beyond the previous deadline of Dec. 1.

If a resident’s expiration date on their driver's license, identification card or vehicle registration is March 9, 2020, to April 1, 2021, the expiration date has been automatically extended and will remain valid until July 1, 2021.

As a reminder, Ohioans can complete many of the services online. If someone needs to purchase a temporary tag for their car, renew their registration, order new license plates, check their driving record or another service, it call all be done at

If a customer must visit a location, they are encouraged to use the “Get in Line, Online” virtual queuing system which allows them to get in line before arriving at their local BMV location.
