Brand new drivers! If you have had a driver’s license from another state, then you do not need to take this test. If you have never had a driver’s license, then you will need to take the Florida Learners Permit Test. The following restrictions apply:

  • Persons under 18 years of age can take the test online.
  • Persons 18 years of age or older must take the test in-person at the DMV.

It covers everything that the real exam covers:
– Traffic Signs and Road Rules
– Vehicle Requirements
– Occupant Protection Laws
– Techniques for Driving Safely

The Florida Learners Permit Exam is based on the Florida drivers handbook, not the Drug & Alcohol Course (TLSAE). We have created two of the best preparation tools on the market to help you study: – The Florida Drivers Handbook Course – The Florida Drivers License Practice Test

Only drivers between the ages of 14-1/2 and 17 years old can take the Florida Learners Permit Test online. If you are 18 years old or older, then you must take the test in-person at the DMV (click here to schedule an in-person appointment or call (850) 617-2000).

Yes. You have one (1) hour to answer 50 questions.

You need to get 40 out of 50 questions correct to pass the exam (80%).

After you’ve passed both the TLSAE and permit test, then you can go to the DMV to get your permit!
We submit your results instantly, but the DMV recommends waiting 24-72 hours for it to update in their state system.

Technical Issues-Common FAQ's

There are several instances where the State of Florida does not allow you to take the learner’s permit exam.

  • If you are 18 or over, you must take the test in person at the DMV.
  • If you have taken the learner’s permit test a total of three times (in person or online) then you must take the test in person at the DMV for any future attempts.
  • You are between 14 ½ and 17 and have 15 unexcused school absences in 90 days. In this case, you will not be able to take the learner’s permit test or get your learner’s permit until you attend school for 30 days in a row with no unexcused absences or turn 18 and your school attendance office completes a License Reinstatement Form and sends it to the FLHSMV in Tallahassee.
  • Your information (Name/Date of Birth/Last 5 of SSN) doesn’t match what is in the State of Florida system.

Provide the clerk with the “S” number that we provide you with on your account dashboard. Or, give us a call and we’ll work with the state or DMV to help them find your record.
