Ohio’s Graduated

Driver’s License

To obtain an Ohio driver’s license, you must be at least

15½ to apply and provide proof of age, identity, and

social security number upon visiting the deputy registrar. If

under 18, the application must be co-signed by a parent

or legal guardian at the time of application. The cosigner

must present two forms of acceptable documents

verifying identify. All applicants must pass a vision test

and a written test to obtain a temporary instruction

permit. The permit allows you to practice driving. If you

are under 16, you can only practice driving with a parent

or guardian. All new drivers under the age of 18 are

required to pass a first time drivers course. If you are over

18, you are not required to take a first time drivers course

but still must pass all the legal requirements to drive.

While a major component of the new program is to allow

teen drivers to get temporary licensing at age 15 ½,

it also mandates an additional 50 hours of supervised

driving time with a parent or legal guardian before

obtaining a license.
