If you fail the OH Driving Exam, you will be able to retake the test but you will have to wait 7 days before you are allowed to do so.

If you fail your test four times, you will have to restart the entire licensing process and (re)obtain your OH Permit. We advise that you do not rush retaking your OH Driving Exam. Pay close attention to what your examiner indicates as your weaknesses and concentrate on improving your driving skills before you retake the OH Driving Exam.

You will automatically fail if you knock down a marker during the maneuverability test.
