What is the FL TLSAE 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.

Is Driver License Direct by Improv a FL DMV Approved Online Drivers Ed course?

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!

What is the Florida Driver′s Guide for Parents and Teens?

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.

How do I know I′m taking the right course?

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.

Can I take the course in increments or do I have to take the whole course at once?

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!

How long does it take to get my Certificate of Completion?

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!

What steps do I need to take after I take the FL drivers education course?

Simple…you can apply for your Florida learner′s permit and then start your training behind the steering wheel!


At what age can I take the Florida Drug & Alcohol Course and permit test?

You need to be a minimum of 15 years old. You must be under 17 to complete the permit examination online.

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.

Do the fees for taking the Florida permit test online include a practice exam that I can take?

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.

How much will my Florida learners permit cost?

Prices are always being adjusted. You are best served by contacting your DHSMV for their current prices.

Am I permitted to drive by myself when I have a Florida Learners Permit?

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.


What do I need to do to get my 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.

What tests are involved in obtaining my Florida driver license?

You will need to complete a driving test and successfully perform a variety of relatively routine driving tasks.

Does a parent need to come with me to get my Florida drivers license?

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.

What does my school attendance record have to do with driving?

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.


What infractions can cause me to lose my Florida drivers license?

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.
