The state is helping Ohioans avoid future trips to the BMV and we're here for it.

Driving the news: Starting today, you can renew driver's licenses and state identification cards on the BMV website.

  • You can order reprints of a lost or stolen license online as well.

What's next: Two more services are going online on July 11 — vehicle title transfers and online knowledge tests for new drivers.

Yes, but: Ohioans still have to head in for skills tests and regular eyesight checks.

  • We recommend using the "Get In Line, Online" feature that debuted last year. It saved Tyler a long wait in his most recent visit.
