Ohio driver’s license knowledge and skills tests and vision screenings can be completed at driver exam stations. Licenses are issued at deputy registrar license agencies. Find the location nearest you here.  

Getting an Ohio Driver License

New Drivers

Ohio residents may obtain a Temporary Instruction Permit Identification Card (TIPIC) when they reach the age of 15½. Applicants must present proof of identity using state of Ohio approved documentation. This documentation must be presented in person at an Ohio driver exam station. The applicant will also need to pass a knowledge test and vision screening before being issued a TIPIC.

Drivers under 18 years of age who have held the TIPIC for a minimum of six months, have completed an approved driver education class, and have completed 50 hours of driving (at least 10 of which must be at night) may advance to a regular license. Restrictions on driving hours, passengers, and mobile device uses are in effect until the driver turns 18.

View the Ohio driver’s handbooks here. Ohio driver’s licenses are issued at deputy registrar license agencies throughout the state.

Ohio License Renewal

Ohio driver’s licenses can be renewed in person at deputy registrar license agencies before the expiration date or within six months after the expiration date. If the license has been expired for more than six months, the driver must first obtain a TIPIC and successfully complete all required testing before a new driver license will be issued.

Ohio Compliant DL

In addition to the standard driver’s license, Ohio also offers a Compliant DL.  This driver’s license requires additional proof of identity using approved documentation.

The Compliant DL can be used to access federal facilities, such as military bases, and commercial domestic flights.
