Effective January 5, 2015 the Ohio Bureau of Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) began issuing new format of Ohio’s Driver License (DL) and Identification Cards (ID) to customers renewing either.
The 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.
