B-SAFE Driving Education is a family owned and operated business (and has been for four generations).  We are state-certified and fully bonded and insured, and we are proud to maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We are honored that you consider trusting us to provide driving education for your future driver.

The State of Ohio requires teens to complete 24 hours on in-class education and 8 hours of in-car training. Our students attend in-class sessions at one of our three locations (Trenton, Carlisle or Centerville), and our in-car training consists of private lessons that ensure a one-to-one learning experience for each student with a certified instructor. (Please note, occasionally, there may be a second student in a car temporarily as we exchange and transport student drivers).

We cannot guarantee that all students will pass their required classroom test or their BMV driving test, of course, but we will do our very best to teach them everything they need to know to do so...and to be responsible and safe drivers.



A teen may begin driving education at age of 15 year and five months, even before they are eligible to obtain a driving permit. At the age of 15 and six months a person may apply for a permit to start their in-car training.

                In Ohio, students are required to complete 24 hours of classroom training and 8 hours in in-car training.

Classroom Training

B-SAFE Driving Education classroom training is held three evenings per week, year round, from 5:15 - 9:30 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at our three locations (Trenton, Centerville and Carlisle). Class length equals 12 hrs per week, so completing two weeks of classroom training, without absence, would complete the 24 hours of classroom training  required by the state of Ohio.  In the summer, we offer morning classes at all three locations.


Typically we offer the following class times and locations, however, please call 513-988-7233  (Trenton) 937-743-2967 (Carlisle) or 937-439-3680 (Centerville) to confirm our schedule of classes & times.

                  Schedule for Centerville Our next class in Centerville will be Monday January 20th from 5:15-9:30 PM  Monday Through Wednesday for 2 weeks.

Classes start every Monday and run Mon-Tues-Wed  at the Trenton locations (6 classes and 8 hours of in car required)

Please call Trenton at 513-988-7233 with any general questions or to inquire about how far out we are currently booking in car.


   Please check back with us in the spring for the 2020 summer morning class schedule.

In-Car Training

The eight (8) hours of in-car training cannot begin until after the student has completed their 24 hours of classroom education, has passed a written test, has a valid permit and his/her B-SAFE course fees are paid in full. We schedule in-car training per our instructor and car availability, and we work hard to schedule drivers as soon as we can and per their schedules also.
**We also offer in-car only training for students who have taken a 24-hour online education class.

          • The driving portion can be scheduled in 2-hour or 3-hour increments in order to accommodate the student and parents.
          • The student will be picked up at the location necessary for the in-car training sessions.
Certificate of Completion

A "Certification of Completion" will be issued at the end of the course, after both the in-class and in-car training have been completed. All driver education must be paid for and completed within six (6) months from the date the student starts classroom instruction- per Chapter 4501-7.10 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC).

Course Fee

The cost of our driver education course is $399.  A small down payment of $100.00 is all that is required to begin classes and we offer easy payment plans.  The balance is to be paid in full prior to scheduling a student's in-car training sessions.
