Why am I being told that I must go to the Ohio BMV Office to take my test?
You're being told to visit the Ohio BMV Office because your identity was not able to be validated online. The validation process is completed through a national third party identity verification partner and due to privacy and fraud prevention concerns the causes for these failures are not disclosed.
No additional details can be provided to correct this for you, and our support teams cannot correct or provide any further details. Attempting to register again will result in another failed verification.
Please make arrangements to visit your local Ohio BMV Office to complete your testing process.
How many times can I take the test?
Applicants may take the test up to two times per test type before being banned for 120 days and must wait one calendar day between tests if ban threshold is not met.
