The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has closed the Circleville driver-examination testing station as of September 1.
The closure is part of 13 stations the BMV is closing, which will save the Bureau nearly $150,000 per year. The locations that are closing are considered to be underused and are staffed either part time or with just one employee.
The stations closing are: Circleville, Marysville, Mount Vernon, Ashland, Bryan, Cambridge, Carrollton, Chardon, Gallipolis, Sidney, Tiffin, Urbana and Wapakoneta.
In order to offset the impact, the BMV said they will expand service at other locations to include Monday testing, which allows those sites to test six days each week. Those locations are: Alum Creek, Hilliard, Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Huber Heights, Jackson, Toledo and Zanesville.
Pickaway County drivers can go to the following testing locations:
