What Does the Florida Drug and Alcohol Test (TLSAE) Cover?

The Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course is just what the title says. It is a brief, focused educational course for all first time drivers in the state of Florida about the dangers of alcohol and intoxicating substances and driving. Even with a specific course you are required to take before you get your license that are still over 5,000 crashes a year in Florida related to drugs and or alcohol.

That is just the number of people that are so grossly impaired that they can’t even keep from crashing. This is a serious issue the state is trying to resolve with education.  Don’t drink and drive EVER. The really crazy part is that statistically, some people reading this are still going to drink and drive.  Here is what is covered in the TLSAE course.

Drugs, Alcohol and Your Body

Do you know how drugs and alcohol can enter your body? You’ll learn about how these can be ingested, inhaled and injected and how each will directly impact you immediately. You’ll also learn about the short- and long-term effects that will impact your driving and daily lifestyle. Lastly, we’ll compare different drugs and teach you how prescribed medication can also be dangerous.

The Cost of Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Do you know the differences between negative and positive coping methods? Through videos and interactions, we teach you how people abuse drugs and alcohol by using them to deal with hard situations. We’ll also teach you the personal consequences and societal costs of a DUI.

Impaired Driving

Driving under the influence doesn’t just mean drunk driving. It also means that you’re driving under the influence of drugs. Your vision and overall physicality are badly impacted and you can’t operate a vehicle safely. Find out how the amount of drinks affect your BAC and why underage drinking simply isn’t worth it!

Florida Traffic Laws

The law is powerful. Wouldn’t you like to know them all before you drive? It could save you money from a traffic ticket, but it can also save your life by avoiding car collisions. In this section, you’ll learn about road rules and our driver license point system.

Vulnerable Road Users

This might seem like a funny term because we don’t use it every day, but vulnerable road users are simply pedestrians, bicyclists and senior drivers. Even typical compact cars are considered vulnerable road users to semi-trucks. You’ll learn how to drive safely around them and how to share the road with other road users.

Defensive Driving Skills

Defensive driving skills is a necessary set of skills to have on the road. Not everyone thinks the same way you do when they’re driving. This is why it’s important to be aware of other drivers’ behaviors and how to handle them. In this chapter, you’ll gain insight on distracted drivers and how to avoid them. You’ll also learn how to be a proactive driver.


Please be aware that to get your Florida Learner’s Permit for driving you need to take more than the TLSAE Course (Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education).  You will need to take and pass the exam for the Learner’s Permit. Watch this video to learn exactly what you need to do to get your permit. (TLDW:Teens can take the exam online with us.  Adults 18+ need to take it at the DMV. Either way you need to study the Florida Driver’s Handbook because that is where the info for the Learner’s Permit exam comes from and we are the only ones offering it in a narrated course with our animated host. Click, listen & learn.)

#1: Take the drug and alcohol test showing that you completed the course on traffic laws and substance abuse.
