Ohio lawmakers want to make teen drivers wait a little while longer before they get a license.

House Bill 293, introduced by Representatives Gary Scherer and Michael Sheehy, would double the amount of time teens would need to have their learner’s permit before getting licensed, from the current six months to one year.

The bill would also restrict drivers under 18 from operating a car between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Right now, the cut off is midnight.

The bill is in it’s early stages and has not been sent to a committee yet.

At soccer practice in Rocky River, parents of four children Mike and Joann Musbach were generally in favor of the plan.
