New law changes process for adults getting drivers’ licenses

About 86,000 Ohio adults a year typically fail the driver's exam

Ohio reveals a new design for its driver licenses and I.D. cards.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WYTV) – Drivers’ education courses will become mandatory for adults who fail the driving test on their first try starting Saturday.

The courses will include a four hour in-person or online program and behind-the wheel training with an instructor, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

While teenage drivers are required to take the courses before they apply for a license, those who are 18 years or older can take the test without them until Saturday.

About 86,000 Ohio adults a year typically fail the driver’s exam.
