Ohio BMV driver examination skills testing resumes: Here's what you need to know

Testing will be available in Bedford starting June 12. Other Northeast Ohio locations will resume testing starting on June 16.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) announced on Tuesday that driver examination station skills testing will resume June 12 at selected locations in the state by appointment only.

The Northeast Ohio location will be at 22133 Rockside Road, Bedford, Ohio 44146 (Cuyahoga County).

Here are the other locations across Ohio that are resuming testing on June 12: 

  • 8210 County Rd. 140, Suite C, Findlay, Ohio 45840 (Hancock County)
  • 990 Morse Road, Suite B, Columbus, Ohio 43229 (Franklin County)

All remaining driver examination station skills testing will resume on June 16 by appointment. Appointments can be made online.

Class D skills testing will use a modified process that allows the driver examiner to score the prospective licensee from outside the car in accordance with the Ohio Department of Health and Center for Disease Control recommended health and safety guidelines.

The BMV will reach out to individuals who had a test canceled due to COVID-19 to provide an opportunity for priority-based scheduling.

As a reminder, if a customer’s license, identification card, vehicle registration, or temporary permit expired on or after the state of emergency’s effective date of March 9, 2020, its expiration date has been automatically extended and will remain valid until 90 days after the state of emergency ends, or December 1, 2020, whichever date comes first.

Many of the services Ohioans rely on at the BMV can be accomplished online at www.OPlates.com. If customers need to purchase a temporary tag for their car, renew their vehicle registration, order new license plates, check their driving record, and many other services, they can complete the transaction online.
