Course Details

As our teens set out on their journey of independence they need a solid foundation of knowledge, skills and plans to reduce their risk behind the wheel. Quality driver education is a critical element in developing safe driving attitudes, improving hazard recognition and managing visibility, time and space in traffic.

AAA's How to Drive Online delivers the rules and essential elements of safe driving in an interactive and innovative way. Approved in the state of Ohio for novice driver classroom education, this online program aims to ensure that safe driving habits are developed and maintained for life. AAA has been in the driver training business since 1935, so trust AAA to help keep the roads safe for all travelers.

Ohio State Requirements:

Students seeking Ohio driving privileges must be at least 15 years and 6 months of age to apply for a permit.

The state of Ohio requires that all students complete the online program within 6 months.

In order to receive your first Ohio driver's license, first time drivers are required to complete a 24-hour Driver's Education course and 8 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a licensed driving school. After you have finished the course, contact a behind-the-wheel training provider. Make sure to let them know you are enrolled in an online course.

In this course, students will complete 40 different chapters broken down into 12 units of online instruction. Each chapter has a quiz that requires a student to pass at 80 percent before moving to the next unit. According to Ohio regulations, only four hours of online instruction can be completed in a calendar day. Once all the units are completed, students will have the opportunity to take three practice exams where they will be able to review their incorrect answers. Once the practice exams are completed, students will complete a final exam, of which they must achieve at least a 75 percent in order to pass. Students may move through the online class in as little as 6 days. Upon successfully completing the course and passing the final exam, a certificate of completion will be mailed to the student.

What About the Permit?

  • Temporary Instruction Permit Identification Cards (TIPIC) are issued to applicants who are at least 15 years and 6 months. Contact the BMV to complete the permit test. Remember to bring documentary proof of your full legal name, date of birth, Social Security number, proof of citizenship or legal presence (U.S. Birth Certificate, valid U.S. Passport/Passport Card, Naturalization Papers, or USCIS documents), and proof of residency.
  • A parent or legal guardian must co-sign the temporary permit application The parent or guardian must also present two verification documents of identification.

All students will be required to pass the state written exam at a license branch in order to be issued a learner's permit. This course, in addition to reviewing the Ohio Driver's Manual, will help prepare them for that exam.
