Driver's license testing stations could consolidate

SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -- Under the proposed plan the was recommended to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, four driver's examination stations would be consolidated into one superstation.

"What was recommended in the memo is that those four locations be consolidated, where folks could go for a one stop shop, take care of their driver exam needs," said Geoff Dutton of the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Those locations are in Hamilton Seven Hills, Lebanon and Sharonville, according to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, expanded hours will benefit the public while saving the state thousands. 

"It could potentially save over 700,000 a year," Dutton said.
 
"When they have a driver's license test, they shouldn't have to pack their lunch to go get it and come back," said Sharonville Mayor Virgil Lovitt.
 
 Lovitt says the plan would create a considerable inconvenience for drivers, who would have to trek all the way to the new superstation.
 
"I they're going to do that at least make it central," Lovitt said.
 
Not to mention losing the economic impact that brings more people into Sharonville.
 
"It draws people in, we've never sat down and really measured that, but it certainly is a draw," Lovitt said.
 
State officials say they're still in the research phase and this plan, and it wouldn't go into effect any time soon.
