Ohio Driving Records Request Information

For a long time, you only had one way to find your Ohio driving records. You had to find your local Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) office and spend quite a bit of time there. But with the innovations of the digital age and the use of online databases, you can conveniently verify driving records with just your internet connection and a compatible device. Here’s a few ways to obtain these records.

BMV Ohio Driving Records Request

You do still have the option of receiving your records via a physical request. The first way to do this is to visit the Ohio BMV website, finding your nearest office and filling out the appropriate form there. Hand in the form, present your license and pay their request fee, and they will provide you with a copy of your Ohio driving records. You can also request a three-year driver abstract record through the mail or on the BMV website. However, you will have to fill out a form and pay a fee for each separate request. It will take about a week or two to arrive in the mail.

Online Ohio Driving Records Request

The quickest way to access Ohio driving records is by using a public online driving record database. To start your search, you’ll need the person’s first and last name and the state in which they’re licensed. If there are multiple people with the same name in this state, you can filter the results by age or address. The Freedom of Information Act of 1966 (FOIA) defines these records as public and legal information. By using an online database, you avoid the hassle of filling out multiple forms, paying fees and making trips to the Ohio BMV.

Once you’ve verified the information through an online Ohio driving records request, you may still need a copy issued formally by the Ohio BMV. This will probably be necessary if the records are to be used for any official purpose.Browse our full list of all Ohio BMV locations here.
