Florida Permit Test
What is the Florida Permit Exam?
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 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. That means you can take the permit test anywhere you have internet access--from the comfort of your own home, favorite coffee shop, or wherever is convenient for you!
How It Works
We make the process easy. Here's how it works:
- Register and pay. You'll create a username and password for your account and fill out your contact information. Make sure you have a unique identifier ready during registration, such as the first five digits of your social security number, an alien registration number, an admissions number, or a Florida ID card number.
- Pass the exam. The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions on traffic laws and road signs. You must answer 40 questions correclty to pass. Each exam question is immediately scored after you select an answer, so you'll know right away whether you answered the question correctly. Once you answer 40 questions correctly, you pass the exam and the exam will end. Your parent or guardian must supervise you while you take the exam. He or she is required to enter his or her Driver License number before you may begin the exam.
The State of Florida requires that you answer validation questions (also known as "personal security questions") during the exam to verify that the person registering for the exam is the person taking the exam. You will fill out answers to the validation questions during registration. An example of a validation question is "What is your favorite color?" You will be asked one validation question after every
five exam questions. You must answer the validation question correctly to proceed with the exam. If you answer the validation question incorrectly, you will automatically fail the exam. This is a requirement mandated by the State of Florida.
- We submit your completion information to the DHSMV. Once you pass the exam, we automatically transmit your completion information for you to the DHSMV, so you don't have to worry about a thing.
