Renewal without the physical license

Postby Beezer » Fri May 08, 2020 7:11 pm

My license expired 5 years ago, short version, had a few surgeries and was unable to renew at the time. My license was lost/destroyed in a flood we had in our basement along with other important family documents. How do I go about renewing and getting a new license issued? I still have my certs from the class I took. Any suggestions on proceeding? Should I contact Cuyahoga county sheriffs office and ask or is it better to resubmit the certs I have?

There is no requirement in Ohio law for you to have/show/give your expired license to renew. They can look you up in the system to see that you were issued a license in the past and therefore eligible for renewal. Unfortunately, some counties have extralegal requirements they impose like that one. Assuming your county or a bordering county is accepting renewal applications, it would be worth contacting them to see what their requirements are and explain your situation.
