4501:1-1-02 License restrictions; suspension of license.

(A) In accordance with section 4507.20 of the Revised Code, the registrar may require a licensee to submit to a driving and maneuverability skills test, a medical examination, or both, if the registrar has good cause to believe that the licensee is incompetent or unqualified to be licensed.

Upon conclusion of the skills test, and receipt of a medical examination report if required, the registrar may permit the licensee to retain his license, or issue a restricted license, or suspend the license.

(B) If the licensee fails the skills test, his license is thereby suspended under section 4507.20 of the Revised Code, and he will not be eligible to retake the skills test for seven days from the date of the failure.

The registrar may, in cases of hardship, permit a licensee, who lives in an area where public or other transportation is not available, to retake the skills test as early as twenty-four hours.

(C) A licensee may attempt to take the skills test not more than four times. If the licensee fails the fourth skills test, then he shall not be entitled to be re-examined or make application for driving privileges for six months, at which time, he must apply for, and receive, a temporary instruction permit identification card and comply with rules 4501:1-1-07 , 4501:1-1-08 , 4501:1-1-09 , 4501:1-1-10 , and 4501:1-1-11 of the Administrative Code.

(D) If a licensee, who is not required to submit to a medical examination, successfully passes the skills test within four attempts, driving privileges shall be reinstated and restrictions applicable to the licensee may be imposed as the registrar determines to be necessary.

(E) If a licensee, who is required to submit to a medical examination, submits a satisfactory medical examination report and successfully passes the skills test within four attempts, a license shall be issued with any restrictions the registrar determines are necessary in accordance with this chapter. Such restricted license shall list the routes of travel and any other conditions under which the licensee is permitted to operate a motor vehicle.

(F) All applications for any permits, licenses or reexaminations made under this rule shall be made directly to the bureau of motor vehicles and not to any deputy registrar.
