Getting Your Ohio Temps (Temporary Learner's Permit), the 24 hour Drivers Ed Course and Getting Your Ohio Drivers License

Getting your driver’s license is one of the main rights of passage maturing from a kid to an adult. There is a long process (2 years) in Ohio for teenagers to get their full license.  Here is what you need to know as a teenager to get your driver’s license in Ohio. 


At 15 years 5 months you can sign up for the Ohio 24 Hour Teen Drivers Ed Course. This gives you an entire month of studying prior to being able to take the knowledge exam. If you work in the course that will give you plenty of knowledge to be ready for the exam when the time comes.


Once you turn 15 years and 6 months you can just go and take the knowledge exam. Technically you do not need any training or courses but we highly recommend you study the signs and laws or how else would you be able to pass the test? To take the exam you need to have proof of identity and take a vision test (here is what you need). But there are smarter ways to do it, here is what we recommend. 


Sign up for our 24 Hour course and if you complete it you will have all the basic knowledge you need. If you do, at the 2 hour mark you will be issued a certificate of enrollment. You need this to take to a professional driving instructor to prove your enrollment in the course because you need to take 8 hours of instruction from one. But you can’t do that until you have your Temps and you can’t get your Temps until you are 15 years 6 months.  So just hold on to it so that when you reach 15 years 6 months you’re all ready. Here is a step by step process to getting your license. 

Step 1: Education

  • Enroll in the 24 hour Driver Ed course (Must be 15 years 5 months)
  • Complete 2 hours in the course to get a certificate (needed to enroll in driver training)
  • Study the course really well and learn all the information especially the signs and laws


Step 2: Take the Temps test

  • At 15 years 6 months you can take the knowledge exam for your Temps. To do that you must:
    • Make an appointment at the BMV
    • Arrange to have a parent or guardian accompany you
    • Gather your required documents
    • Will need to pass a vision screening
    • Take and pass the Knowledge Exam
    • Visit a deputy registrar license agency to get your temps. (Must bring your documentation) 
    • Must have the TIPIC for 6 months before applying for a license


Step 3: After Getting the Temps test

After you get your temps make sure you practice the things you will be tested on during the Road Test. Don’t just aimlessly drive around. Learn the skills you will be tested on so that you can pass your exam. You need to have your Temps for 6 months before you can take the Road Test. If you live near the BMV office you will take your test at drive around the roads near the office. Those are the same roads you will be on during the test.  While practicing make sure you achieve these milestones:

      • You’ll need to complete a 24 hour driving class but if you enrolled with us and followed our suggestions you’ve already done that. If not you need to. 
      • Find and enroll for 8 hours with a professional driving instructor (you will need your enrollment certificate from the course for this)
      • Practice 50 hours with your parent or guardian (10 hours at night)
      • Make sure you practice the maneuverability test

After you have completed all the above you are then ready to take your Driving Skills test and get your probationary driver’s license 



Step 4:  Getting your Ohio Probationary Driver’s License. 

After you have completed all the requirements of your Temps you are then ready to take your driving test. This is the actual driving part of the test. It is comprised of 2 parts, driving (Road Test) and maneuverability. We have an info graphic of the most common mistakes people make while taking the road test. Take a minute to look at it. Click Here. We had one student fail the road test because she took a sip of her coffee. It is that serious. Don’t have any distractions whatsoever in the car with you when taking the test. 

Step 5:  In-Person Driving Tests

The in-person road tests are where you will drive on public roads near the BMV location and be tested on your driving skills and your proficiency in maneuvering your vehicle.

The Road Test

You will need to perform the following for the road test:

      • Stop & Start
      • Turn around and back up
      • Perform turns
      • Use vehicle turn signals
      • Drive in the correct lane
      • Maintain a safe following distance
The Maneuverability Test

For the maneuverability test you will need to prove your proficiency in pulling forward and backing up in a confined space as the graphic shows. There are key points to this. For example:


Step 6:  Pass the test and earn your Probationary License!

Drivers License (First 12 months) 
After you’ve completed the 6 months with your temps you can get a Probationary license.

  • Can not drive after 12 midnight and before 6 AM unless parent or guardian is with you.
  • Can drive to work, school or church events with the proper documents in the restricted hours
  • Can not drive with more than one non-family member as a passenger without a parent or guardian. 


Step 7:  (Second 12 months)

  • Can not driver after 1am and before 5 am. 
  • Have to have a parent or guardian with you. 
If for some reason you do not pass the driving test you have to wait seven days before retaking it. We suggest you use those seven days to practice the skills that you were deficient in that caused you to fail.

Ohio Learner's Permit Practice Tests

All good students use the same methods of success. One of the best is to take practice tests. They help identify areas that need more study. 

At 2COOL we offer one of the best. It works just like the real exam with 40 questions except there is no time limit so you can research areas you’re having trouble with while in the test.  Here are 2 important things about it:

  • Over 500 questions
  • unlimited uses

Why is unlimited uses important? Once you pass it you’re good, right? Wrong, you need to pass it like 4 or 5 times. Each time it is going to give you 40 different questions from that 500 to choose from. So chances are if you took it 20 times you’d never see the exact same test.  You need to take it several times even after you first pass it to make sure you know all the topics. 


Certificate of Enrollment vs. Certificate of Completion

What’s the difference? We want you to be aware that there are two different certificates that you will get during the Ohio 24 hour teen drivers ed course. You will first get a certificate of enrollment, and then later when you finish the course, you will get a certificate of completion. Let’s take a look at what the differences are between the two!

Certificate of Enrollment

Certificate of Completion

Your certificate of enrollment is NOT the same as your certificate of completion. This certificate is rewarded to you when you have completed 2 hours of the Ohio 24 hour teen driver’s ed course online. You will take this certificate with you to a professional driving school where you can enroll in behind-the-wheel driving lessons. You will not be able to start these lessons without the certificate of enrollment because the state wants to see that you have some type of knowledge about driving before you actually take the wheel with a driving instructor. We will ship this certificate to you by mail (no electronic versions like email are permitted–sorry!) through FREE USPS shipping. FedEx expedited shipping is available at an additional cost.

The certificate of completion means that you have completed the entire Ohio 24 hour teen driver’s ed course online. You will not receive this any earlier than your completion as with the certificate of enrollment. You must complete the entire course before getting the certificate of completion. We will be notified automatically that you finished the course and we’ll mail it to you through whichever shipping option you chose when you registered and paid for the course initially. As with the certificate of enrollment, electronic versions are not permitted. (Please note: Your name, birth date, and certificate address must be exactly as it appears on your permit or else your certificate will be denied by the Ohio BMV.)

Want to learn more about the Ohio teen 24 hour drivers ed course? We’ve answered some commonly asked questions below!

Not necessarily. At 15 years and 5 months, you can enroll in a 24-hour driver’s ed course that will eventually allow you to get your temps (or permit) one month later when you are actually 15 and a half years old.

If you’re 18 years old, you do not have to take a driver’s education course before taking the driver’s test to get your license. However, if you’re 18 and you fail the driver’s test then you must take a 4-hour abbreviated adult course, which we also offer here.

It depends on which drivers ed course you need. Since you’re on the Ohio 24 hour teen driver’s ed page, we figure you might be talking about this one. Our course goes for $74.99 . But that includes FREE shipping for your Certificate of Enrollment and a FREE FedEx 2-Day Upgrade on your Certificate of Completion.

Yes, you can take the Ohio 24 hour teen driving course as early as 15 years and 5 months old.

No. You must be at least 15 years and 6 months to get your permit. However, you can start taking the Ohio 24 hour teen driving course when you’re 15 years and 5 months old.

There’s a bill that has been advanced that would raise the minimum age to get a probationary driver’s license from 16 years old to 16 years and 6 months old. If the bill passes, this would mean that a teen who is 15 ½ will require to hold that permit for one whole year before they can get their actual license instead of six months as the law currently states.

You can take the Ohio 24 hour teen drivers ed online course without a permit. However, you’ll need to get a permit in order to complete the behind-the-wheel driving practice requirements.

The Ohio teen driving course itself is 24 hours long. However, it’s not possible to get it in less than six days because the state requires that you only be able to take four hours a day. After the four hours is complete, you will be locked out for the rest of the day and will not be able to start back up until 24 hours from when you began the previous day. Additionally, there’s behind-the-wheel training that you must complete. This is an in-person training and a service that we do not offer.

No. This is the 24 hour online teen driving course for Ohio. If you’re looking for the 4 hour abbreviated driving course for adults, then you can click here.
