TEMPORARY TAG DEFECTS UPDATE
As you may already be aware, the BMV is diligently working on the Temporary Tag issue regarding the tag number falling off. If a customer returns to your dealership with a temporary tag and the tag number has fallen off, you will need to issue a REPLACEMENT
temporary tag. The BMV will be reimbursing dealers for those temporary tags that are being replaced due to defective material. Further details will be provided when available.
UNTIL THEN, THE BMV RECOMMENDS FOR THE ISSUANCE OF YOUR CURRENT STOCK:
- Display the temporary tag in plain view in the rear window of the motor vehicle as permitted in the Ohio Revised Code 4503.21(A)(3).
- Make sure you keep track of any replacement temporary tags that you have had to issue.
- Please watch the announcements for updated information regarding the temporary tags reimbursement process.
If your customer goes to a Deputy Registrar (local BMV) to obtain a replacement temporary tag, they will be charged at the full price of $18.50.
