You now have an extra year to get a Real ID driver’s license or identification card. The Department of Homeland Security extended the deadline to obtain a Compliant Driver License ID— which will allow U.S. air travels to board a domestic flight— is October 1, 2021. The new deadline was moved due to the coronavirus pandemic. Currently, the State has temporarily closed more than 180 BMV offices in Ohio. The NW Ohio BMV in Bowling Green (1616 E. Wooster St.) remains open only for issuance of commercial driver licenses, or CDLs and for the renewal of CDLs.
For more information, go to the driver’s license page at www.bmv.gov or call 800-CALLBMV.
