Lawsuit seeks $3 million in 'bogus fees' from Ohio BMV

A lawsuit seeking the recovery of more than $3 million in “bogus fees” paid by Ohioans has been filed against the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in the Ohio Court of Claims.

The action, which seeks class-action status to represent more than 2 million people, follows an investigation by The Dispatch that found BMV deputy registrars had charged and collected a $1.50 fee for laminating driver licenses since mid-2018 while not providing the service.

With the switch to federally compliant driver’s licenses and ID cards, a BMV vendor — not local registrars — has produced and mailed driver licenses and ID cards since July 2.

In the pending transportation budget before the legislature, the $1.50 fee will be retained and renamed the “document authentication fee” to reflect additional duties registrars now perform to handle federally compliant licenses.
