Teenagers in Ohio would be able to take driver’s education courses online instead of in classrooms under a proposed change being considered by lawmakers.

Teens younger than eighteen are required to have twenty-four hours in the classroom and eight hours behind the wheel with instructors.

Driving schools opposed to the change say it would allow teens to do the online work with little oversight, creating more opportunity for cheating.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association says fifteen of the twenty-six states that require teen driver education allow online training.
