Do You Need This Course?

The Abbreviated Adult Driving Course is an Ohio requirement for all drivers 18 or older who have not previously held a driver's license and who failed the Ohio driver's test (either the maneuverability or driving part).  A completion certificate showing successful completion of an approved course must be presented before you are given another attempt at the Ohio driving test.

The abbreviated course provided by the Safety Council is a 4-hour, state-approved, online course that you can take at home. After taking the online course you are required to perform 24 hours of driving with a licensed driver 21 years of age or older before you can retake your driving test.  

The course fee is $75.00, payable online upon registration.
