For motorists with multi-year vehicle registrations that recently received a 10-day suspension letter from the Ohio BMV, the BMV is in the process of mailing in the next few days a follow-up letter to provide more time for E-Check requirements. This applies ONLY to motorists with multi-year registrations who were required to get the test by July 1, 2021 or Aug. 1, 2021. Please see the content of that letter below:
Subject: E-Check Compliance Deadline
Dear Ohio motorist,
You may have received a ten day suspension letter stating you have not yet complied with E-Check requirements. For those who did not receive such letter, this is your notification that a passing E-Check certificate is required.
In conjunction with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA), the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will extend your E-Check compliance requirement until September 30, 2021. To resolve this matter, you will need to have your vehicle tested as soon as possible. A passing test or an extension will automatically send a certificate number to the BMV. You will not need to visit a BMV license agency to show your E-Check certificate.
If you are unable to get your vehicle tested by September 30, 2021, due to repair work that needs completed or for any reason, you may apply for an additional extension through the Ohio EPA by no later than September 30, 2021. To obtain an extension, you will need to bring a copy of the suspension letter and/or your registration to any full service test station or mail them to one of the addresses below.
