Ohio – Ready, Test, Drive!

The Ohio Traffic Safety Office is expanding an initial BMV project utilizing Virtual Driving Assessment Systems (VDAs) in 8 driver exam stations in Ohio. The expansion includes placing the VDAs in all exam stations and incorporating the systems in driver training schools.
