Ohio Lawmakers Advance Bill to Raise Driving Age For Teens
The bill would raise the minimum age to get a probationary driver's license to 16 ½

The Ohio House Transportation and Public Safety Committee voted 11-to-4 on Tuesday to advance a bill that would raise the minimum age to get a probationary driver's license from 16 to 16 ½.
