The 24-Hour Ohio Driver Education Course

The state of Ohio requires all teenagers under the age of 18 to take a 24 hour teen driver’s education course and 8 hours of professional instruction, prior to getting their license. At 15 years and 6 months a teenager can take the knowledge exam (or the written portion of the driving test) that qualifies them for a temporary learners permit or temps.

The state allows students 15 years and 5 months to sign up for the online driver education to give them a full month of study time prior to being able to take the knowledge exam at the BMV.

Adults can take the course, too! Although this course is required for teens, adults are highly recommended to complete this program, too. It is a great resource for first time drivers that want to get comprehensive driver education. And, if you are an adult who completes the 24 hour driver’s ed program and 8 hours of behind-the-wheel with a driving instructor, you will not be required to take the Abbreviated Adult Course if you fail your road test within 1 year of taking the driver’s ed program.

We now include a FREE Practice Test so that students can test their knowledge prior to taking the actual exam to judge their preparedness.  Join our Too Cool Traffic School family by signing up for our newly innovative online course and start driving soon!

Supported on all devices

You're not a professional driving instructor, but this app will help you teach your teen like one while you do the required 50 hours of behind-the-wheel practice.

Reduce Your Teens’ Chances of Dying or Being in a Crash by up to 50%!

Crashes Are the #1 Cause of Teen Deaths

Let’s be honest. We try to pass laws to prevent teen crashes, but the truth is, we need to teach our kids to be better drivers when they start out. But parents aren’t trained on how to teach their kids how to drive! So how do you do it well? That’s where DRVN comes in. A father of 4 young men from Columbus didn’t want his sons to become a statistic. After looking at the data, he discovered that parents and guardians who served as the primary driving coach for their kids weren’t doing a good enough job teaching their teens how to drive. So, he wanted to do something to make it easier for parents to make their teens safer drivers! Just because your kids suddenly turned old enough to drive doesn’t mean that you magically know what and how to teach your kid as a driving instructor. You’re not a professional driving instructor but this app guides you to teach your teen like one! =)

Topic Descriptions

We know that you’re wondering what exactly will be in our course. That’s why we’re giving you a nice sneak peek into each and every one of our sections.
We want you to be 100% comfortable taking our class online, so we try to be clear about everything (see FAQ).

Section 1: The System and You

Did you know that driving is a privilege and not a right? That’s why it’s important to know the system. The “system” that we are going to teach you is the Ohio highway transportation system. You’ll learn the ins and outs about the highway on which you are about to embark! We’re going to tell you why the system works and what happens when it doesn’t. More importantly, we’ll teach you defensive driving strategies that will reduce car collisions. We’ll also explain the overall advantages to taking an online driver education course and describe the Ohio Graduated Driver Licensing process.

Section 2: Vehicle Familiarization

We know that not every car is the same, but they do have the same basic features. In this section, you’ll learn about the four vehicle systems: (1) comfort and control systems, (2) visibility system, (3) information / communication system and (4) anti-theft system. Each is uniquely located and operated differently, so it’s important to be familiar with them. You’ll also learn and practice the completion of proper pre-drive checks when you’re approaching the car, outside of the car and inside of the car. You’ll also learn how to adjust the car to fit you. You do not want to overlook these pre-checks because you’ll be performing them during your driving test!

Section 3: Basic Control Tasks

In this section, we go heavy on the interactions and videos! Why? The basic control tasks that we teach you are better taught with visuals. You’ll see how to operate basic control tasks in a vehicle with an automatic transmission. We’ll show you acceleration and braking techniques as well as how to turn, park, pass and more! Again, you’ll want to pay close attention to these maneuvers because you’ll be performing them during your driving test.

Section 4: Traffic Control Devices and Laws

Here’s another fun and highly visual chapter that you’ll love. All those traffic signs and roadway markings spread throughout the streets–What exactly do they mean? In this section, you’ll take an in-depth look at regulatory signs, warning signs and guide signs. We’ll also illustrate what to do in various right-of-way situations according to Ohio driving laws. Last but not least, we review the school bus stop law, speed laws, railroad crossings and more!

Section 5: Perception and Driving Strategies for Different Environments

In school, they tell you that sharing is caring. That’s still true in traffic school, too! We have to learn to share the road with other drivers. Even though you can’t control everyone’s driving behaviors, you can control yours. By being a proactive and defensive driver, you can reduce risks of collisions on the road. In this section, we introduce the S.E.E. system and discuss strategies for managing speed, space and visibility in different driving environments, such as urban and rural areas and expressways.

Section 6: Natural Laws Affecting Vehicle and Operator Performance

What goes up must come down! If you don’t like science, this section might change your mind (…we said might!). We’ll talk about gravity, kinetic energy, force of impact and more. These factors contribute a lot to driving believe it or not. With videos and other visuals, you’ll be able to see how different speeds and momentum interact to bring different results when driving. After this chapter, you’ll know strategies that reduce risks on the road while driving under these natural laws and you’ll understand the value of seat belts. Buckle up!

Section 7: Handling Vehicle / Driver Emergencies

No matter how new your car is, there are going to be times when you have to deal with a driving and/or vehicle emergency. This is every new driver’s worst nightmare! But you won’t have to worry because after this section, you’ll know just what to do in these emergency situations. We’ll teach you how to respond to emergencies that are caused by vehicle malfunction and driver error as well as how to deal with collisions or breakdowns properly. Remember, even when you’re done with this course, you’ll still have access to it and this section for reference later!

Section 8: Operating in Adverse Conditions

We understand how wishy-washy Ohio weather can be, especially during winter. That’s why we want you to know how to drive when there’s bad weather because you can’t avoid it sometimes. In this chapter, you’ll learn safe driving strategies that reduce risks on the road. But first, you’ll learn about the effects on driving with reduced visibility and reduced traction that result from rain, snow, low light, night time conditions and more.

Section 9: Driver Fitness

What’s driver fitness? It’s your overall physical and emotional health that decides whether or not you’re fit to drive safely. This section is very interesting because we take into consideration things that you might never think about that relate to driving. For example, we show you how certain things can spark certain emotions or mental distractions while driving. We also go over your physical senses, such as vision, touch, smell and hearing. Depending on your conditions, these senses can cause fatigue and other ailments that might prompt you to take energy drinks or drugs to stay awake. This leads us to talk about how drugs and alcohol cause impaired driving and how to remove yourself from peer-pressured situations.

Section 10: Responsibilities of Owning and Maintaining a Car

Congratulations! You’ve finally got a car. Now it’s time to show you the ropes on what you need to do to keep that car legal and safe. What we mean by keeping your car “legal” is that it needs to be registered and insured. We’ll teach you this process and teach you how to maintain your car to prevent costly repairs in the future. For those that don’t have a car yet, we haven’t forgotten about you! We have compiled a tips and other helpful suggestions when it’s time to consider buying a car.

What’s the difference in the two certificates?

In case you didn’t know, teens who take the 24 hour Ohio Driver’s Ed Course will get two certificates in the process: a certificate of enrollment and a certificate of completion.
It’s important to know the differences between the two of them. Find out what they are below.

Certificate of Enrollment

The certificate of enrollment is NOT your certificate of completion. Please, do not get this confused with the certificate of completion. It does NOT signify that you have completed the course. Instead, this certificate is required for you to begin your behind-the-wheel lessons. Without the certificate of enrollment, you will not be allowed to enroll in any behind-the-wheel lessons with your instructor. You will receive this certificate by mail through free USPS shipping after you have completed 2 hours of the Ohio 24 hour driver’s ed course. FedEx expedited shipping is available at an additional cost.

Certificate of Completion

The certificate of completion states that you have completed the entire 24 hour online course. Please, do not get this confused with the certificate of enrollment. Once you have finished the Ohio 24 hour driver’s ed course online, we will be notified automatically. The certificate of completion will be mailed to you through free USPS shipping, or you can purchase FedEx faster shipping. You will need to take this certificate of completion with you to the BMV in order to get your license.  Please Note: Your NameDate of Birth, and Certificate Address must be exactly as it appears on your permit or else your certificate will be denied by the Ohio BMV.

No Surprise Up-Charges in the Cart
No Up-Charge for Narration
No Fake “State Fees”
No Up-Charge for Certificates


You heard it here first! At 2Cool Traffic School, our advertised price is always our honest price. Taxes included.

The price you see is the price you pay. Don’t you hate it when you’re buying something and you’re about to check out and the price in the cart isn’t what you thought it would be?

Our competitors ask for an additional charge for everything that is already included in the price of our course. Our competitors also tack on false state fees and a certificate fee. They claim that their advertised price is the price you pay. This is false! Luckily, at 2Cool Traffic School, WE ALWAYS GUARANTEE HONEST PRICING and you get your certificate shipping included with a free tracking number. No one else does that!


Don’t be fooled by a low advertised price. That is known as “deceptive marketing”.

When you get to their shopping cart thinking that you found the best price, keep in mind that the price can quickly increase when they add on:

  • State Fees
  • Taxes
  • Certificate delivery Charges
  • Course Narration

So please don’t be fooled by the low advertised price.  That price can balloon by over $40! We hope that you choose the best course for you.  Not based on some tricky advertising.




Free FEDEx shipping & tracking number are included in your course purchase, but it may take up to 2 weeks to receive your Certificate of Enrollment. We know you want to start driving and that is time-sensitive. This is why we also offer FedEx shipping at an additional cost for guaranteed faster delivery for your Certificate of Enrollment.





Standard Enrollment Certificate Delivery (FREE)

Certificates of Enrollments are mailed daily if qualified students complete 2 hours of the online 24 hr Teen Driving Course. These are mailed FREE using USPS and will include a tracking number at no additional cost. Our awesome support staff will email you the tracking number upon it being mailed.

The estimated time of delivery with standard USPS shipping is 7-10 days, including weekends. However, the average delivery time is 3-5 days. In order to have your certificate of enrollment processed and mailed on the same day through USPS, you must complete 2 hrs within the the course by 2:00 p.m. (M-F).

FedEx Express Certificate Delivery

You are 2Cool to wait for snail mail! We offer additional expedited shipping options so that you receive your certificate of enrollment so you can begin driving with your instructor:

  1. Overnight (Guaranteed Next Business day by 8:00 p.m., M-F)
  2. 2-Day (Guaranteed 2nd Business Day by 8:00 p.m., M-F)
  3. 3-Day (Guaranteed 3rd Business day by 8:00 p.m., M-F)

*Please note: FedEx does not deliver on weekends and does not deliver to P.O. Box mailing addresses.

Course Requirements

In order to satisfy the requirement for 24 hours of classwork, you must take 2 hours to get your Enrollment certificate that you need to take to the DMV to get your temporary learners permit.  Then you will need to complete the remaining 22 hours of online class time not taking more than 4 hours a day.  While working on that you can be working with your professional driving instructor on your 8 hours of driving with them.  When that is complete you will still need to complete 50 hours of driving practice with your parent or guardian 10 of which must be at night.

Proof of Completion

We understand that the process of getting your license might be extremely time-sensitive and a little stressful. The longer you take, the longer you wait! We suggest registering right now, quickly get through the validation process and starting the course as soon as possible. After completing 2 hours of the course, the state of Ohio requires that we physically mail your Certificate of Enrollment. You need this to enroll in the behind the wheel driving training. Sending any certificates by email or any electronic version is not permitted. This is the rule for all online traffic schools. We offer FREE USPS SHIPPING (tracking number included) for your Certificate of Enrollment, which can take 7-10 days depending on the time of year but usually 3-5 days.  After completing the entire course, your certificate of completion must also be mailed to a physical location and we will mail it FREE using FEDEx EXPRESS 2-day Guaranteed Delivery.  We will always email you all tracking information for both the Certificate of Enrollment and the Certificate of Completion.  (Please note: We are an online-only traffic school. We do not offer any Behind-the-Wheel training.)

Proof of the behind-the-wheel training is a form signed by your professional driving instructor and the 50-hour affidavit which certifies that you practiced with a licensed parent or legal guardian.
