Ohio Lawmakers want to increase minimum driving age to 16 ½

Ohio's newest drivers account for its highest percentage of accidents, so the state's representatives are debating a bill to withhold their driver's licenses for a longer period of time. 

Lawmakers plan to increase the minimum age at which young motorists can apply for a driver’s license.  This legislation would increase the age for first time drivers to obtain their license from 16 to 16 ½ .  In addition, first time drivers would have to have their temporary instruction permit for 12 months, up from the previous 6 months.
