I currently live in Licking County. I received my CHL several years ago in Licking County. My wife now needs to get her permit. That being said, it appears that Sheriff has now included a Birth Certificate requirement. From what I can see, this is NOT required by Ohio law. I think it's a bad idea to accept requirements not included in the law. I know we can apply in any county that touches Licking County, which solves the immediate problem. My question is has anyone pushed back on Licking County on this?
