2. If my driver's license is expired, how long do I have to renew it?

You have six (6) months to renew your driver's license without having to take the driving tests again. However, there is no grace period for driving on an expired driver's license. Your driver's license expires on your birthday, every four (4) years. TIP: It is a good idea to make it a part of every family birthday celebration to have every licensed driver check their driver's license for expiration. You would be surprised how many times this has saved someone from driving illegally and/or having to take the driver's exam again.  Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles website.

8. When do I have to report an accident?

It is advisable to report all crashes which occur on the public roadways to the appropriate police department. If your vehicles are in the roadway and pose a traffic hazard, please move them to a safe location until the police arrive. However if you choose not to file a report, you must stop and exchange information when an accident occurs. Information to be exchanged should include:

  • Name, address and phone number.
  • Driver's license number.
  • Vehicle make, model, color and license plate number.
  • Insurance company and agent.
  • Note the date, time, location and obtain information from anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
  • Inquire about possible injuries.

Police departments generally do not take accident reports that occur on private property (parking lots). Exceptions to that are:

  • If the accident results in injury to anyone involved
  • If one of the drivers is intoxicated
  • If the accident results in a hit and run
  • If the accident is the result of reckless operation.
9. Is school closed today?

The police department does not make the decision concerning a school closing, and we are not advised by the superintendent when such events occur. We suggest you listen to a local radio or TV station or call the school in question directly.

The City of Huber Heights has a curfew that effects young people under the age of eighteen. It states in part that any minor out during restricted hours has to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

  • Weekdays (Sun.-Thurs) - 11:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m.
