COLUMBUS — Ohio is easing the penalties for failing to register vehicles with the state on time.
The Bureau of Motor Vehicles says the fee for a late renewal is being cut from $20 to $10 starting Monday. The grace period for the fee will be extended from seven days to 30 days.
Registrations generally expire on owners’ birthdays. Renewals can be completed online or at deputy registrars’ offices up to 90 days before expiration. Motorists can face fines for driving with an expired registration.
