License Bureau - Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealers Association

License Bureau

Our Deputy Registrar Agency at 138 East Court Street – Room 100 in the Hamilton County Administration Building downtown is currently practicing COVID-19 state and CDC guidelines during its daily weekday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. hours.

Please call our office at 513-721-3271 or 3272 with questions regarding vehicle registration, fingerprinting, or any of the driver’s license or photo id services the bureau provides.

I renewed my license during COVID restrictions, and found the staff extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. They were absolutely on top of sanitizing their service window areas between customers.

Five-star Google review from Mark D. from Cincinnati

What began as member-only service more than 30 years ago ultimately became a full-fledged Agency offering the full array of deputy registrar services.  Each year our office will process nearly 90,000 transactions for the general public as well as our dealer members.

While we serve the general public’s needs for deputy registrar services, we remain focused on assisting our members by providing a dedicated dealer desk with a separate entrance to ensure swift and efficient service.   Whether you are dropping off work to be picked up later or need to process a transaction immediately, our staffed dealer desk ensures that you receive the work you need when you need it.

For added convenience, we are located across the hall from the Clerk of Courts Office.  So if you drop your title work off with the Clerk’s Office, we have the ability to walk next door, pick it up for you, then process the necessary registration services, thereby providing one stop shopping.

Do you have new salespersons that need fingerprinted to obtain their license?  Our Agency offers BCI & FBI Fingerprinting (Webcheck).  This electronic service has really simplified the background check requirement when applying for a salesperson’s license.  It is easy and convenient.
