Columbus – Starting today, Ohio motorists can use electronic devices to show proof of insurance for their vehicles. This change has been implemented thanks to the enactment of Senate Bill 255, sponsored by Senator Edna Brown during the 130th Ohio General Assembly.

“This was a common sense step forward which takes advantage of widely used technology and adds convenience for Ohioans,” said Senator Brown. “I was proud to lead the effort to bring this change to our state.”

The new law does not eliminate the printed insurance identification cards currently in use, but allows drivers to provide the same information through an electronic device.
