Do I have to take drivers ed or driver training to get an Ohio driver license? Ohio

Yes, if you're younger than 18 years old.

In this situation, you must successfully complete a state-approved drivers education or driver training course. You can take the class through a high school or a licensed commercial drivers ed school.

When you finish the class, you'll receive a completion certificate, which you must bring when you take your driving test.

Even if you're not required to take a drivers ed class, it's not a bad idea to do. Why? Because it can help make you a safer driver. And, it can increase your chances of passing the challenging written license test and driving test on the first attempt. (Taking a practice test can boost your success rate, too, for the knowledge exam.)
