In Ohio, if you were married then the vehicle can be transferred to you as the surviving spouse.
If you were married then you must bring to the Title Office, acceptable identification, certified copy of the death certificate, Application(s) for Certificate of Title to a Motor Vehicle (Form BMV 3774) , Original Ohio Certificate of Title number (if applicable), Clerk of Courts Surviving Spouse Affidavit (form BMV 3773) listing vehicle make, model, year, body type, and vehicle identification number (VIN) and the value of the vehicle , and payment for title fees.
I you were not married then the transfer must go through the Probate Court.
I hope this helps with your question.
