CINCINNATI (WXIX) - If you get a text asking you to verify your driver’s license with the Ohio Department of Transportation, do not fall for it.

ODOT officials say people have been receiving texts asking them to validate their info with the department.

ODOT does not issue drivers’ licenses. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles does.

And they are not asking anyone for that information, ODOT officials say.
