COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) — Those who’ve been waiting to take their driver examination station skills test during the COVID-19 shutdown are getting some good news today.
The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) recently announced that in-person skills tests are revving back up again on June 12 by appointment only.
However, the testing is only resuming at the following locations on that date:
- 8210 County Rd. 140, Suite C, Findlay (Hancock County)
- 22133 Rockside Road, Bedford (Cuyahoga County)
- 990 Morse Road, Suite B, Columbus (Franklin County)
- 873 East Main Street, Newark (Licking County)
- 502 McCarty Lane, Suite 3, Jackson (Jackson County)
- 10940 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati (Hamilton County)
But, starting June 16, some of Ohio’s other BMV locations are also resuming their testing. Potential test takers are asked to call their local BMV at that time to ensure their location is offering the services.
Anyone who had their test appointment canceled due to the coronavirus shutdown, should receive word from the BMV shortly to reschedule. These rescheduled tests will get first priority.
All test appointments can be made online right here.
In-car driver testing will safely resume at these six locations by appointment only beginning June 12. All exam stations will resume in-car testing by appointment on June 16. Those who had tests canceled during Covid-19 will receive a call from the BMV for priority scheduling. pic.twitter.com/myNlEM0cjm— OHBureauMotorVehicle (@Ohio_BMV) June 9, 2020
BMV locations reopened their doors on May 26 for some services (as seen in the video above). All Ohio drivers are reminded that if they do need to visit the BMV, to get in line online before visiting to cut down on wait times.
