Q. Can I start classes before I get my temporary permit.
A. Yes. You can start classes at age 15 years and 5 months. However, you must have your temporary
permit in order to begin your in-car training. You must be at least 15 years and 6 months in order to
take the test for your temporary permit.
Q. Do the classes have to be taken in order?
A. No. You must complete all eight classroom sessions in order to complete the course. However, the
classes may be taken in any order.
Q. What if I have to miss a class?
A. If you miss a class, you will need to make up that particular class the next time it is offered. For
example, if you miss class #3 in the series, you must make up class #3 in the next series.
(class dates are generally posted on this web site 1 to 2 months in advance)
Q. When can I schedule my in-car sessions?
A. Once your fees are paid, you can begin your in-car sessions at any time after you have
completed the first classroom session.
You are not required to have all your classroom sessions completed or to have your 50 hours of
parental supervised driving completed in order to start the in-car sessions. However, there is a State
of Ohio restriction that limits the maximum training hours for anyone under 18 to no more than 4 hours,
therefore, a classroom session and a behind the wheel session are not permitted on the same day.
Q. When do I have to pay?
A. Payment may be made at the start of your first classroom session, or by registering online.
Q. I notice that the classes are 3 hours long! Is there a break?
A. Yes, we generally have about a 15 minute break at about the mid point of each class.
Q. My schedule just won't allow time for the classroom sessions. Are classes available online?
A. Yes, the classroom sessions may be done completely online. Just click on the Teen Course Online
tab at the top of the page for details.
Q. OK, how do I get started?
A. Just call the school 614-777-1762 or use the online registration.
