Updated for March 2019. The first step to driving in Ohio is to pass a BMV written test to get your temporary instruction permit, or TIPIC. If you’re 15 ½ or older, you are eligible to take the written test and get your TIPIC. The knowledge assessment will have 40 multiple-choice questions based on the 2019 Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws, which covers traffic laws and vehicle regulations. To pass, you’ll need to score a 75% or higher, so it can be useful to use BMV practice tests like this one. In addition to the written knowledge exam, you’ll also need to pass a vision test, and pay a $22 fee. Ohioans also have the option of signing up as an organ donor with their TIPIC, starting at age 15 ½ instead of the typical age 18 requirements.
