If you are over 18 years old and fail your driving test in Ohio, you will be required to take an Ohio Adult Abbreviated Driver Training class before attempting the test again.
You will be required to take either 4 hours of classroom instruction or 4 hours of online instruction, but it must be with a state approved and licensed driving school. We recommend taking the course online with us because you can do it on your own time and in the comfort of your own home.
Once you have taken the 4 hours of instruction, the state requires you to do behind-the-wheel-training. This can be done in 4 hours with a certified driving instructor, or for 24 hours with a licensed driver over 21, but we recommend you complete your behind-the-wheel training in 4 hours with our licensed abbreviated adult driver instructors.
In the 4-hour behind the wheel training you will better understand why you may have lost points on your the road test. We will also go through the new driving laws in Ohio with regard to turns, stops and proper hand positions. We will help you succeed at the maneuverability or road portion of the driving test as well.
All Star offers 4-hour behind the wheel training with our abbreviated certified instructors in Metro Toledo and Upper Arlington areas.
When can I retake my driving test?
Before the second attempt at the driving test, the applicant must:
- Provide a certificate of completion of an abbreviated adult driver training course.
- If you choose 24 hours of driving with a licensed driver 21 years of age or older, the will require you to provide a completed and notarized Twenty-Four Hour Affidavit (form BMV 5789).
If you fail the road test twice, you do not have to take the course again. Instead, you must wait 7 days and then you can take the test again.
If you are under 18 and looking to take your road test again after failing it – you only need to wait 7 days, you would not need to take an adult abbreviated course.
What happens if I fail my driving test three times?
If you fail the test three times, you will have to go through the licensing process again.
