Can you use a backup camera during a driving test in Ohio?

I was practicing for my upcoming driving test and realized I was using the backup camera. I’m not sure if that’s allowed. I’d like to stop relying on it, if not. Can I use my rear camera during a driving test in Ohio?

You can use a backup camera during a driving test in Ohio. However, you cannot solely rely on the camera when reversing.
This means you can look at the rear camera, but you also need to physically turn your head to check behind you, as well as use your windows and mirrors.
The driving test is designed for you to prove you can operate a vehicle without the aid of cameras and other modern car technology.
