The title and registration office shares a building in Centerville with one of six Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles deputy registrar license agency’s in Montgomery County.

The one located at 104 W. Spring Valley is not included in the lease with the county, according to the city. Others BMV sites are in Dayton, Huber Heights and Moraine, according to its website.
