Ohio DMV Locations
Ohio, the birthplace of aviation, is the 7th largest state by population with the estimated number of residents at 12 million. By area Ohio is 34th largest in the US. It lies in the northern end of the Midwest area with Columbus as its largest city and capital.
The state of Ohio is a crossroad to many states linking northeastern states to Midwest and west through many interstates and other highways. There are also many expressways and freeways in Ohio. Besides the intercity roads, there are many large metropolises with congested roads. Therefore, the drivers are expected to have exceptionally good command and this same is required for driving license.
The great urban impact on overall population has resulted in a car rush among the residents that has resulted in more than 6 million registered cars in Ohio. The registration process of cars and other motor vehicles require going through the processes like paperwork completion, application, and vehicle insurance and titling.
The state of Ohio has setup a specialized entity called bureau of motor vehicle or Ohio BMV which looks after the motor vehicle related activities. The primary responsibility of Ohio BMV is the issuance of driving license through paper work, drivers training and license tests; and registration of motor vehicles. Ohio BMV also takes care of issuance of state ID cards, motor vehicles inspection and commercial driving license related activities.
Each county in Ohio has BMV offices that are serving the locals close to their residences. The counties with large population or with big metropolises have more offices than other counties. Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati have more offices per square mile than other places.
Each BMV office provides basic driving license and motor vehicle registration related services to the people. However, the specialized services like commercial driving license and vehicles inspection are provided only at a few locations. Each office follows its own daily time schedule resulting in varying office timings for each office.
