Treasurer Josh Mandel and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Leverage Technology to Accept Credit Card Payments
Press Release - Ohio Treasurer's Office
COLUMBUS – Treasurer Josh Mandel and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles announced this month that Ohio’s deputy registrars are now accepting credit cards as an option for payment. Ohioans are now able to purchase drivers licenses, renew their vehicle registration and complete other transactions for the first time with the convenience of a credit card payment.
The Ohio Treasurer’s office has been working with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) to develop the technological and administrative capacity to securely and effectively offer credit card payments for BMV customers. Beginning last month, pilot sites began to roll out across the state. As of July 1, all 191 deputy registrar locations and six BMV reinstatement centers now accept payment via credit card.
“I am proud to partner with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to offer this long-overdue option for Ohioans,” said Treasurer Mandel. “By leveraging technology, we are helping to give BMV customers across the state a convenient and easy-to-use option, much like they are used to in their everyday lives.”
“Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles is pleased to be able to provide the credit card payment option to our customers,” said Don Petit, BMV Registrar. “This is just another example of our continued effort to improve the overall efficiency of our operations as well as the customer experience.”
BMV customers using credit cards will be charged an additional processing fee of $1.25 or 1.95 percent, whichever is greater.
