In recent years, more first-time drivers are waiting until they are 18 or older before getting a driver’s license, said Karhlton Moore, executive director of the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services, which oversees driver training for the state.

Starting Saturday, adult applicants for a driver's license who fail the driving test on their first try will have to take an abbreviated driver-training course before their next attempt.
Unlike teenage drivers, who are required to take courses that provide at least 24 hours of classroom instruction and eight hours of behind-the-wheel training, first-time applicants who are 18 or older can get a driver's license without taking a class.
Our approved adult remedial online course is 4 hours in duration. Costech Technologies has been leaders in distance training for over 15 years.

More states received an A grade this year than ever before, and the effort states are putting into innovation, collaboration and making sure their investments are well aligned with the priorities of the people they serve has never been higher." States with a solid A grade this year are Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Utah and Virginia.
Common trends among the A students were a strong focus on cybersecurity, shared services, cloud computing, IT staffing, budgeting and use of data.
The classes will be a condensed version of the instruction that teen drivers receive and will go over the essentials of safe driving, Moore said, from the proper placement of mirrors to the dangers of distracted driving. A House bill introduced Tuesday would require teens to hold a temporary permit for a year before taking a driver's test.
It also would prohibit newly licensed teens from driving between 9 p.m. Now, temporary permits are issued at age 15 1/2 and must be held for six months, and nighttime restrictions for teen drivers don’t start until midnight.
