Testing in Other States

If a vehicle is registered in an Ohio E-Check county and is permanently, temporarily, or indefinitely housed out-of-state, it is not exempt from the Ohio E-Check requirements.  If the vehicle is located in a state with a testing program, you must test the vehicle and send the vehicle's original passing test certificate, a readable copy of the vehicle's registration, and an Ohio E-Check Exemption/Extension application [PDF] to Ohio EPA.
