If I get in an accident and can't call my family, how will they be notified?

In this state you can register emergency contact information through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles as long as you have a valid driver's license or state ID card. Registration can be done online or in person at your local BMV office.

If you are not registered with the BMV, emergency personnel will try to obtain contact information through your place of employment or school, if possible.
