FPS staff report

License Bureau ribbon cuttingAn open house at the Carrollton License Bureau last week marked the first anniversary of its operation under the direction of Jaclyn (Ott) Thomas and celebrated the beginning of a new five-year contract with the state of Ohio.

Thomas, who worked at the License Bureau during her father’s tenure (Dean Ott) as the registrar, has spent a total of five years in the agency. Ott said she has signed a contract with the state to operate the facility for the next five years. 

The License Bureau is the state licensing agency for all types of vehicle license plates, and houses the examination station for driver’s license permits and licenses as well as Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL).

Hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

The facility has a total of six employees, including Thomas, Dean and Donna Ott, Sharon Spilker, Nicole Taggart and Brittany Long.

Ohio’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of which the Carrollton office is part of, ranks first in the country based on the factors of service, wait time, accessibility, prices and overall performance. The average wait time for service at an Ohio DMV office is just over 14 minutes,
