Bureau of Motor Vehicles Questions

What is the Bureau of Motor Vehicles?

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles or Department of Motor Vehicles is a state level government agency that gives out driver’s licenses and vehicles registration for the vehicles and drivers of each state. The name DMV or Department of Motor Vehicles is not used in every state, but is a universal way for someone to know where to get their vehicle registered or to gain a driver’s license. This department also helps with the points and such on a driver’s license.

According to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, how many points would a person get if they are caught riding a motorcycle without a helmet and with only a permit in the state of Ohio?

If the person received points in the state of Ohio for not wearing a helmet and only having a permit, then there may be a mistake or other reason why there would be points, as Ohio does not give points for those violations. If the person wanted to see what the points are for, then the following link will show a full list of points that Ohio places on licenses:

How would a person who moved from New York to Florida get their New York driver’s license changed to a Florida driver’s license?

The person would need to establish his/her residency in Florida and go to the DMV and show the DMV proof of the residency. The DMV will then issue a Florida driver’s license. The person would want to call the DNV and ask what all they need to bring with them when getting the Florida license and then they would need to surrender their New York license to the Motor Vehicle Bureau in Florida.

Can a parking officer ask a handicapped person, who received handicapped plates from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, for the paperwork that proves they are indeed handicapped or would this be considered harassment?

If the person feels that they are being discriminated against and feels that the parking officer is harassing them, then they will have the option to file a grievance or complaint with the parking officer’s supervisors. Since the meter maid is not the one who determines the eligibility of the person being handicapped, the complaint should be filed.

Would a person who lives in Florida have to hire a lawyer to go to court to title a travel trailer in their name with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, when the old owner skipped town?

The person more than likely would not need to hire a lawyer to represent them. The individual could possibly represent themselves by filing an Order to Show cause as to why the trailer should not be found to be abandoned by the previous owner. This will help the person be able to take over ownership of the travel trailer. The judge is not guaranteed to agree with the person, but it does not hurt for the person to try this route before hiring an attorney.

When a person gets a ticket, titles a car, or receives a driver’s license, then he/she may have to deal with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The person may have several questions about the legal issues regarding points on his/her license, what subjects them to points, or any licensing issues. When these questions arise, then the person would need to seek the advice of an Expert to gain the answers to the questions they may have.
