How to Get your Ohio Driver's Licence
Are you a teen on getting your driver's license in Ohio? Good news, you’re only five steps away!
To start the process, you must be at least 15.5 years old. When you're ready, All Star offers online classes to aid you in the process.
Step One: Knock out your vision and written knowledge tests!
Go to your local Driver Exam Station and complete your vision and written knowledge tests. If you don't pass the first time, you can take it again as soon as 24H later!
Step Two: Pick Up Your Permit!
Go to your local Deputy Registrar Licence Agency to purchase your Temporary Instruction Permit Identification card within 60 days of passing the vision and written knowledge tests.
Make sure you don't forget the required documents.
Step Three: Get Behind-The-Wheel
Your permit grants you the ability to start driving!Register for the behind-the-wheel component of your education with a local, state certified, professional driving school. Present them with our Online Enrollment Certificate (OEC) to prove that you’ve started your required classroom hours with All Star.
Remember, you need 8 hours behind the wheel with a professional driving school and 50 hours (10 at night) of behind the wheel practice with a parent or legal guardian. If you are over the age of 18 you must drive with a licensed driver over the age of 21 or a certified driving instructor.
Step Four: Become an all star!
When you've finished your course, we will mail you your Online Completion Certificate (OCC). You will need to take that certificate to the school where you did your behind the wheel hours and they will present you with a Driver Training Completion Certificate (DT). You need this certificate in order to take the driving test.
Step Five: Get your licence!
Now it’s time for your driving test! Set up an appointment at the Driver Exam Station to take the test. Don't forget your Driver Training Completion Certificate! If you fail your first try you have to wait seven days to retake the test. After your fourth attempt you have to wait six months to retake the test. So, remember, relax and take your time!
