Teen & Novice Drivers

Novice drivers under the age of 18 are required to complete 24 hours of classroom driver education and 8 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a licensed driving instructor in order to obtain an Ohio driver's license.

AAA created the first-ever driving course in 1935.

These classes and behind-the-wheel instruction are taught by nationally and state-certified instructors specializing in AAA's curriculum. As a trusted leader in traffic and roadway safety, we look forward to helping you create safe driving practices for life.  

All classes take place at AAA Ohio Auto Club Headquarters in Worthington. Drives also start and end at this location.
