Next of Kin Registration


Ohio has become one of the first states to make a next of kin registration process available. Any holder of a valid Ohio driver's license, commercial driver's license, temporary permit or state of Ohio identification card will now have the option of providing the name and information of a contact person they wish to be notified if the individual is involved in a crash or emergency and is otherwise unable to communicate with the contact person.
