Effective today, January 5, 2015, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles will issue a new format of Ohio's Driver License and Identification Cards to customers renewing their DL or ID.
Visible changes to the DL and ID include:
- Blue/green card in place of the salmon colored card
- Laminate on front of card now contains the word “OHIO” and the year “1803” near the top of the card
Individuals holding a DL or ID printed in the old formats are still valid until the DL or ID is expired.
Customers are not required to obtain a replacement DL or ID if they have the old format. If you wish to obtain a new DL or ID, before your current DL/ID expires, you may do so by paying a $25.75 (DL) or $8.50 (ID) fee at your local Deputy Registrar.
Anyone with questions regarding the new format should contact the Ohio BMV at: 614-752-7500.
