FAIRFIELD, Ohio — Renewing a vehicle registration could become more convenient for Ohioans.
Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, director of InnovateOhio, and Charlie Norman, Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles registrar, joined representatives from Meijer and Intellectual Technology Inc. on Wednesday to announce the pilot launch of new BMV Express self-service kiosks.
The announcement was made at the Meijer in Fairfield, where a kiosk is located.
The new system, featured at nine deputy registrar and retail locations across the state, allows customers the ability to renew their vehicle registrations at a self-service kiosk.
“InnovateOhio’s goal is to change the culture of state government so that every service is designed with the customer in mind,” Husted said in a news release. “The service ... offers a convenient way for Ohioans to quickly and easily renew their vehicle registration so they can continue on with the rest of their day.”
Several of the locations will give customers 24-hour access to in-person vehicle registration renewal. Users will be able to instantly print off their registration card and validation stickers directly from the kiosk. The BMV plans to expand the system to more locations after gathering data on usage from the pilot.
“The BMV is dedicated to improving the overall customer experience by providing our customers with access to innovative solutions that better meet their diverse needs,” Norman said.
