      As long as you follow the correct protocol and get the right staffer handling your request and live in Ohio.

      Other states have privacy controls that would block this from happening without explicit sign-off.

      That’s so bizarre.

      In my country, only police can look up a licence plate, and only on official business - cops have lost their jobs for looking up friends, family and ex-girlfriend’s licenses.
