A: In Ohio, warrants are issued against a person, not property. While the car is registered to your father, the warrant is linked to your name, date of birth, and social security number. The BMV will put a warrant block on your license (if you had one), preventing you from renewing your license until the warrant is lifted/resolved. Good luck - I hope this helps!
