INFORMATIVE AND PROTECTIVE...Ohio Driver License Changes by Peggy Bennett
If you haven't, renewed your driver license lately, you may be unaware of the changes that have come about since July, 2018. first, you receive your new state driver license through the mail. You still have to go to the DMV to initiate the process, but you will only get a temporary card to use until your new license comes through. A new national security requirement taking effect in October 2020 also comes into play when you renew. Those "interested in using their state-issued credential (license) for access to federal facilities or services, such as airport security screening by the TSA for boarding commercial airlines may choose to obtain a compliant credential (license) that meets all federal requirements. Those choosing this option will be required to provide documentation proving their full legal name and date of birth, Social Security number such as a Social Security Card, birth certificate or passport, and two additional documents proving residential address, such as utility bills." Those not interested in getting a license that meets federal requirements will have the option of a standard drivers license of identification card without additional document requirements. License renewals continue to be for four years. After October 1, 2020, no Ohio driver license or identification card issued before July 2018 will be accepted in airports by the TSA.
