Developing Skills for a Lifetime
Teaching new drivers the skills they'll need to stay safe while on the road may be one of the most
important endeavors Ohio undertakes each year. That's because driving a motor vehicle remains among the most hazardous tasks most people will ever perform.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 15- to 20-year-olds in the United States each year.
Helping teens develop driving skills they'll use for a lifetime requires the time, expertise
and energy of many - those at the Ohio Department of Public Safety, qualified
driving instructors, state licensed schools and involved parents. By visiting
this site and learning more about the process, you've shown your interest
and commitment to driver safety.
