BMV 20 Day Suspension Notice
If you received a 20 Day suspension letter:
Take the vehicle to an automobile emission testing station and obtain a passing emission test before the deadline. A passing test will automatically send a certificate number to the BMV and you will be compliant. You will not need to visit a BMV license agency to show your E-Check certificate. If you receive another letter from BMV, please contact Ohio BMV at the telephone number on the letter. Be prepared to provide BMV your E-Check certificate number, located on the passing certificate.
If you are out of the testing area, in the military or cannot obtain a passing test due to another issue, you may be eligible for a one-time 6-month extension.
To request an extension for a vehicle that failed an e-check test, you can bring the letter and the failed certificate or an aborted notice to any full-service test stations. These stations can be located using this link: ohioecheck.info/locations
For vehicles that cannot pass the test due to needed repairs, vehicles out of the testing area, military, or other requests, you can mail the extension application, copy of suspension letter and the other documentation requested in the application to either of the addresses below. The extension application can be found here: https://epa.ohio.gov/static/Portals/27/echeck/docs/Extension_Exemption10-12.pdf
