Florida Driver Education

Overview

To qualify for your Learner's License in Florida, you must pass the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course and a permit test. Safe2Drive is a Florida HSMV-approved provider of both the TLSAE course and the permit test.

Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) Course

The Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course is a 4-hour course on traffic laws and alcohol and drug abuse that anyone who has never held a driver license must complete before applying for a Class E Driver License or Learner's License in Florida.

The TLSAE course is divided into 10 short lessons on topics ranging from the physiological effects of drugs and alcohol, to how to drive safely in bad weather. Each lesson is full of fun videos, animations and games. You can complete the course at your own pace--come and go as you please. Every time you log in, we'll take you to where you last left off.

At the end of each lesson is a short multiple-choice quiz. You must score at least 80% on the quiz to pass. If you don't pass on the first try, don't worry! You can take the quiz as many times as you need to pass at no additional charge.

At the end of the TLSAE course is a 40-question multiple-choice final exam. You must score at least 80% to pass. Most people pass on their first attempt, but you can take the exam as many times as you need to get a passing score.

We automatically submit your TLSAE course completion to the Florida DHSMV for you. You can also print a FREE copy of your Receipt of Completion for your records.

Please note that it takes approximately 48 hours for your TLSAE course completion to be annotated on your record once we report it.

Permit Test

The Florida permit test (also known as the Class E Knowledge Exam) is an exam on road signs and traffic laws that you must pass to qualify for your Learner's License or a Class E Driver License in Florida. If you are under the age of 18, you can skip the hassle of taking the permit test at the DHSMV and take the permit test online. Complete the permit test wherever you have internet access--from the comfort of your home, favorite coffee shop, or wherever is most convenient for you. A parent or guardian must supervise you as you take the exam.

The permit test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions on road signs and traffic laws. You must answer 40 questions correctly to pass. Each question is immediately graded as soon as you select an answer, so you will know right away if you got a question correct or incorrect. Once you answer 40 questions correctly, you have passed the exam and the exam will end. You have 60 minutes to complete the exam.

When you pass the exam, we automatically transmit your completion information to the Florida DHSMV for you. We also provide you with a Receipt of Completion that you can keep for your records.
