In process with my renewal through Geauga county, where I got my original license.
Very straightforward process, and it was well documented what to expect on the sheriff's website.
- Bring in filled out renewal application (link to Ohio page with PDF is given)
- $50 application fee, with types of payment accepted and other types not accepted
- A notation that the proof of training certificate was no longer required for renewals
- Bring in a SASE with two forever stamps if you wish your new license mailed to you
Once I was in the process, the officer also told me the state seems to get back to them within a week or in four weeks, and nothing in between. He also pointed out the current license would be good for 30 days beyond the expiration. He then handed me a card and said to call the office/number listed if I had not heard back from them in a reasonable time.
Overall a very easy and positive experience. I can only imagine my own county (Cuyahoga) would be the complete opposite.
