First, you need to get your Temporary Permit or Probationary license
The best way to start is by reading the Ohio BMV Handbook
. You can get the online version or download the PDF. Then take a free practice test. Get 30 out of 40 multiple choice questions correct on the Ohio driver license test to pass (you get unlimited attempts until you pass).
You must be at least 15 ½ years old to apply.
You will need to bring a few documents with you to your local Driver License Center when applying:
- Proof of identity (name and date of birth)
- Social security card
You will also take an eye test while at the Driver License Center. If you wear glasses, do not forget to bring those!
