At 15 and 5 months of age, you can enroll in Driver Ed Academy to complete the 24 hours of required classroom time. Once you turn 15 and 6 months of age, you take your Social Security card and original birth certificate to the nearest Ohio Driver's License Examination Station. You then take the written and vision tests. No appointment is necessary for these portions of the examination.
When you show up for your exam, you must answer questions concerning your physical health and any medical conditions you might have. If you have a condition that might affect your driving, the examiner will explain the steps you have to take and provide you with a medical packet.
After you pass the written and vision tests, the examiner will validate one of your forms to take to the BMV and get your temporary permit. You will then be able to practice driving on the street - but only if you are accompanied by Parent who is a licensed driver or your Instructor in the seat next to you.

You will also need to have practiced with your parents for at least 50 hours, with 10 of those hours being at night. It is highly recommended that you document these hours.
