Parents and Teens:
FAQ′s- FL TLSAE AND PERMIT TESTING
ABOUT THE FLORIDA DRIVERS EDUCATION COURSE
The Florida Traffic Law and Substance Abuse (TLSAE) course is a Florida drivers education course that all teens in the state must complete to get their Florida learners permit. It teaches the basics regarding responsible driving, and the problems associated with abusing drugs and alcohol.
Absolutely! Our easy to take FL TLSAE course can be competed in just four hours and meets all of the requirements to get the first-time learner′s permit in Florida. Teens love it because it doesn’t have to be taken all at once. You can complete it at your pace!
In the Sunshine State, parents or legal guardians need to spend 50 hours with their teen drivers as part of their FL behind the wheel driver education training. Ten of those need to involve night-driving. The Florida DHSMV created a handy guide which includes details about the driving skills a teen will need to know and that the parent will coach their teen drivers to do properly! It also includes the form that will need to be signed in the presence of the FL DHSMV test examiner by the parent or guardian. If the parent or guardian cannot be present, the signed form can be notarized.
It can be a bit confusing. After all, the course is known by several titles. They may refer to the Florida Drivers Ed Course as The Florida First Time Drivers Course, TLSAE, The Florida Drug and Alcohol Course, or ADAPT. Regardless of what it is being called, they are all one in the same. Our course is compliant with Florida regulations and is what you need to apply for your Florida learners permit.
No! That′s why so many like our approach. You decide when and where you will study. Take your time as it fits into your schedule. Our Florida Drivers Course online is designed for convenience and to work around your busy teen schedule!
This is another reason people love us. We report that you have completed your course to the DHSMV for you, usually within a single day of completion. We will provide you with a TLSAE Course diploma which you can immediately download and print/save to your computer after you complete the course. You may even want to print the diploma on some nice paper, frame it, then hang on your bedroom wall in to remind yourself of your achievement toward your learners license goal!
Simple…you can apply for your Florida learner′s permit and then start your training behind the steering wheel!
TAKING THE FLORIDA PERMIT TEST
You need to be a minimum of 15 years old. You must be under 17 to complete the permit examination online.
You can go to your local FL DHSMV office and take the Florida permit test there, or you can take the Florida permit test online if you are between 15 and 17 years old.
Florida DHSMV requires teens to complete a Drug and Alcohol Course prior to any application to get a learners permit. There is an exception for those who have a license issued by another state who are 18 years of age or older.
- ✔ 20-question multiple choice test on "Road Rules"
- ✔ 20-question multiple choice test on "Road Signs"
You must get at least 80% of the questions correct in each section of the test to pass. Since both the "Road Rules" and "Road Signs" sections contain 20 questions, you must get at least 15 questions correct on each section to earn a passing score.
Another plus for our Florida permit online test! It gives you three (3) chances to pass your Florida learners permit exam. Even if you don?t pass it after three times, you can still take it again. However, future attempts to re-take the Florida permit test will need to be taken in-person at the DHSMV.
Yes. Our Florida drivers permit practice test includes actual questions from previous DHSMV exams. This lets you know precisely what kinds of questions to expect! This will be a big advantage in your preparations for the exam.
To apply for the Florida learners license, you must be at least 15 years old, and have successfully completed an approved Florida drivers education course. You will also need to have at least 50 hours of driving experience supervised by a parent or guardian, with ten of those occurring at night.
In addition to taking the Florida permit exam ("Road Signs" and "Road Rules"), you will be required to complete the following:
- ✔ A vision test.
- ✔ A hearing test
Yes. The consent form can either be signed in person at the FL DHSMV or can be signed in front of and notarized by a Notary Public and submitted to the FL DHSMV.
You can only drive during the day during the first 90 days and until 10pm for the next 90 days. After that, you can drive anytime of the day or night as long as you are accompanied in the front of the vehicle with a driver who is 21 years of age or older.
Prices are always being adjusted. You are best served by contacting your DHSMV for their current prices.
No, you must be accompanied by a driver who is 21 or over. It remains that way until you turn 16 and earn the Intermediate Driver’s License.
GETTING YOUR FLORIDA DRIVERS LICENSE
You need to be at least 16 years of age and have a Florida learners permit for a minimum of a year without being cited for any driving infractions.
You will need to complete a driving test and successfully perform a variety of relatively routine driving tasks.
Yes. A parent or guardian will need to not only sign off on your application, but they will need to certify you have had 50 hours of on the road training with them in the car. Of those 50 hours, ten of those must be at night.
You will need your learners License from Florida or a valid license from another state. You will also need a parent or legal guardian to certify that they have had 50 hours in the car with you while you were driving. Ten of those 50 hours would need to be a night.
If you are 16 years of age you can only operate a motor vehicle between 6am and 11pm. If you are driving to or from work or accompanied by a driver who is 21 years of age or older these restrictions are lifted.
If you are 17 years old, you may drive from 5am and 1am, again unless driving is work related or you have a 21 year old or older licensed driver in the front seat with you. Once again, in those cases, the restrictions are lifted.
Florida will only give driving privileges to teenagers who they feel are responsible. School attendance is used in helping to determine this responsibility. If it is decided that you are truant, you will likely have driving privileges suspended. You will have to make an effort to resolve your truancy to gain those privileges back. In most cases, this can be done by making sure you attend classes regularly for 30 school days in a row.
A DUI and or any major violation or serious accident can cause revocation. Teenagers in particular are scrutinized for driving infractions.
If you are under 21, it is illegal to buy beer, wine, or liquor in Florida. It is illegal to even have an alcoholic beverage in the vehicle unless you are accompanied by a parent.
If a teen gets a DUI conviction in Florida, it can mean some very expensive and inconvenient ramifications. First of all, the courts can take your car for a period of up to a half-year. Not only that, but you will have to pay a storage fee over that period in order to get it back! Even a first DUI can result in jail time and heavy fines. In Florida, the DMV has no choice but to revoke the licenses of any driver less than 18 years of age a full year for a DUI, or until they are 18 (whichever is longer). In this case, you must also show proof that you have insurance, show proof that you have completed the educational part of an authorized DUI program, and pay a DMV re-issuance fee.
