Going to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles to renew your driver's license wasn't a picnic to begin with. You stand in line, worry you didn't bring the proper documentation, fill out paperwork, take that god-awful ID photo that you'll be stuck with for the next four years. Root canal surgery seems more entertaining.
To mix things up, the Ohio BMV has made things even more complicated, with new guidelines on getting your license. Just renewing your license? Bring your old ID in. Planning on traveling by plane in the next four years? Then you need a new TSA-compliant license, requiring you to bring documentation with your full name, date of birth, Social Security Number and two proofs of your current Ohio address. And don't think you're getting your license by the time you leave the BMV. Instead, you'll get a temporary license, with your real license mailed to you in seven to 10 days.
