Youngstown license reinstatement center to close

Posted: Updated:

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles will close the remaining six license reinstatement centers, including one here in Youngstown. 

According to information from the BMV, as of January 7th, the BMV will close counter-based services at the following BMV Regional Reinstatement Centers. 

This includes locations in Downtown Youngstown, Canton, Cincinnati, Jackson, Toledo, and Parma. 

The BMV told 21 News that the effort is part of an attempt to support customer access to full reinstatement services in all 88 counties, which began in 2015 and provide the added customer convenience of completing reinstatement and driver license transactions in one office.  

The closures do not affect the normal offices of the Deputy Registrar License Centers. 

Customers may visit any Deputy Registrar agency for all reinstatement needs:

o   Acceptance and posting of reinstatement payments; 

o   Processing of reinstatement paperwork; and

o   The BMV's Reinstatement Processing staff will validate a customer's driving status and will request additional information (if applicable). If reinstatement is approved, the Deputy Registrar can immediately issue a driver's license or a temporary instruction permit identification card (TIPIC) if re-testing is required.

Customers can check reinstatement requirements online at BMV Online Services,, to print requirements, or the Reinstatement Requirement Letter (BMV2006) serves as a checklist to collect all needed documentation before visiting a Deputy Registrar.  

Customers can also call the BMV's toll-free number at 1-844-OHIOBMV (644-6268).
