    OH Driver Handbook

    The Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws is required reading if you're preparing to get your Ohio driving permit or license.

    It's even a good idea for licensed, experienced drivers to have a copy of it handy as it contains a lot of useful information, including some things that you may have forgotten since you first passed your driving test.

    The handbook and the Commercial Driver License Manual are available as printed publications at your local deputy registrar's branch.

    You may also download the following handbooks in PDF format:

    You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print the PDF files. Download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website.
