Florida Learners Permit Test FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions for the Florida Learners Permit Test

Our Florida Learners Permit Test is 100% online for those who are under 18. You have one hour to answer 50 questions that are based on the Florida driver’s handbook. Your pass/fail grade will appear right after you complete the exam. 2Cool automatically reports your passing grade to the DHSMV. No certificate is given or needed. If you fail, you have to repurchase the exam before retaking it. To help avoid failure, take our FL Driver’s Handbook Course and Practice Test. Questions/study material from the Drug & Alcohol Course will NOT prepare you for this exam. This is a common misunderstanding.

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. 

General Questions

– Traffic Signs and Road Rules
– Vehicle Requirements
– Occupant Protection Laws
– Techniques for Driving Safely

2. How do I study for the test?
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

3. Can I take the test online?
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).

4. Is there a time limit to take the test?
Yes. You have one (1) hour to answer 50 questions.

5. How many questions do I need to get right?
You need to get 40 out of 50 questions correct to pass the exam (80%).

6. What do I do after I pass the test?
After you’ve passed both the TLSAE and permit test, then you can go to the DMV to get your permit!

7. Can I go to the DMV right after I pass the test to get my license?
We submit your results instantly, but the DMV recommends waiting 24-72 hours for it to update in their state system.

8. I passed my permit test, but I don’t see my certificate.
No certificate is given or needed because we submit your results automatically to the DMV’s system.

9. What happens if I don’t pass on my first try?
Unfortunately, you will have to buy the test again and take it again. You only have a maximum of three (3) total attempts to take the test online. If you fail three times online, then you must take any remaining attempts in-person at the DMV. To avoid failure, consider taking our Florida Drivers Handbook Course and Practice Test!

Unfortunately, you fail the test. This counts as one failed attempt. You must buy the test again.

Technical Problems

1. It says I’m ineligible to take the learner’s permit test. What went wrong?
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.

2. I’m at the DMV and they can’t find a record for my test. What should I do?

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.
