How does online driver’s education work?
Sign-up through our website and make the payment. You will receive a username and password to get into your student portal. The next steps are available on the home page of your student portal. After completing the online class and adding your permit details, you can start scheduling your drives from the student portal.
Upon completion of the course AND the 8 hours of driving, a final completion certificate will be created and available in your student portal. Please allow 10 – 15 business days after your completion of the course AND the drives for the delivery of the final certificate. Please DO NOT schedule your road test till you have received the final certificate.
What if I do not have my temporary permit?
You can still enroll and take classes before receiving your permit. You will, however, have to obtain your permit before participating in the “in-car” portion of driver’s education. For more information on behind the wheel please visit the FAQ section: Ohio Teen Behind the Wheel.
How long will this course take to complete?
That depends on your individual pace. In Ohio, all drivers’ education courses must be at least 24 hours. You can always go at your own pace and log in and out at your convenience. Keep in mind, that the state of Ohio only gives 180 days to complete the entire program.
How long do I have to work on the course?
The state allows you to work on the course for up to 4 hours per 24 hours. If you hit that 4-hour mark, you will be logged out of your class and have to wait 24 hours before you can log back in.
Is driver education required for me?
It is required for anyone under the age of 18.
How old do I have to be to start driver education?
You can be 15 years and 5 months to begin your driver education course. Here’s our guide on “How to get an Ohio driver’s license”
How do I complete the state-required paperwork?
Log into your student portal and see the list of documents required in the portal. Please use the upload files option to add the required documents.
How long after I complete my course will it take for me to get my completion certificate?
Our compliance department creates these daily. Please check the highlighted section on the student portal home page to know when to expect the certificate.
What do I do if my certificate is lost or damaged?
If you began your course before May 1st, 2022, and lose your certificate, you can contact our office to request a duplicate by calling 734-665-7374. The cost for a duplicate certificate is $15. The State of Ohio also requires a Duplicate Request form to be filled out and sent to us before processing. We will need to collect that fee and form before the new certificate is made and mailed. You can find that duplicate request form at: http://www.publicsafety.ohio.gov/links/DTO0120.pdf
After May 1, 2022 all certificates are uploaded on the student portal and you can find it in the student files section.
What is your refund policy?
We cannot issue a refund if you have already started the course. Please allow refunds 7-10 business days to process.
