The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has created a system to access your driving record on-line. The system permits drivers to obtain a record of all convictions within the past two years. The driving record will also reflect all open suspensions or revocations. Drivers are reminded that Ohio Revised Code (ORC 4510.037) provides that the Registrar of Motor Vehicles is required to impose a license suspension on all drivers who accumulate 12 points on their records during any two-year period. A list of points charged for various offenses can be found in ORC 4510.036. Click HERE to access your unofficial driving record. To obtain a certified copy of your driving record that includes information from the last three years, click HERE. You can also request a certified driving record by calling the Automated Telephone System: 1-866-OPLATES (675-2837).
