Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said at least $4.5 million will be used to create more options and access to training for teens in underserved areas.

“Ohio’s driver training programs help young drivers develop responsible road habits, while also laying the foundation for a lifetime of safe and confident driving,” said Governor DeWine. “More students in underserved areas will now have access to this vital training, allowing them to contribute to a safer, more informed generation of drivers.”

A total of 34 grants will be awarded through the Creating Opportunities for Driver Education (CODE) Grant Program to help increase driving training capacity at nearly 100 locations throughout the state, the governor’s spokesperson said.
