It’s easier than ever for first-time drivers to take their Florida learner’s permit test online. Thanks to Ticket School’s online testing options, Florida drivers aged 15, 16, and 17 can now take their permit tests entirely online, 24/7. That means no more having to hitch a ride just to wait around at the DMV, which can help many new drivers save valuable time and money. Unfortunately, if you are 18 or older, you are required to take the test in person at a driver license office.

Added convenience isn’t the only advantage of online testing. Read on to learn some of the biggest advantages of taking your learner’s permit test online and how easy it is to enroll with Ticket School.

1. It’s Easy to Use

At Ticket School, signup is simple: All you need is your legal name, date of birth, and the last five digits of your Social Security Number. Once you’re eligible, you can then complete the test online. To pass, new drivers must correctly answer at least 40 of the 50 questions for an 80% passing score.

Drivers must also successfully pass a Drug and Alcohol Course from the Florida Traffic Law Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) before they can finally get their learner’s permit. For your convenience, Ticket School also offers this course entirely online, complete with HD video and 24/7 availability.

2. It’s Convenient

Another great thing about taking the Florida learner’s permit test online is the extra convenience. Offered entirely online, drivers can complete their test anytime, anywhere, and on any device, all from the comfort of home. Forget having to change plans or go out of your way to go to a special location just to take the test: With Ticket School, your permit test comes to you.

3. You Can Take It More Than Once

Didn’t pass the test on your first try? No problem. You can take the online test two more times before you have to take it in person at the nearest motor vehicle or tax collector’s office. Since you don’t need to keep going back to retake your test, you also save time, gas, and maybe even test anxiety. Even better, you also won’t have to inconvenience your family or friends for a ride to the test location.

4. It’s Florida DHSMV Authorized

What’s the use of taking an online test if your score doesn’t officially count? Ticket School’s permit test is fully approved by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). With less anxiety and fewer hoops to jump through, you can save your energy and focus for learning to be a safe, competent driver.

Note that while online tests are permitted by the state, a small percentage of drivers may be randomly selected and required to take the test again in person. This precaution is put in place by the DMV to eliminate cheating and keep the test valid for everyone.

5. You’ll Also Be Eligible for Your Florida Learner’s License

After passing your Florida learner’s permit test online and taking the Drug and Alcohol Course, you’ll be eligible to receive your Florida learner’s license. Since this isn’t a standard driver’s license, however, there will be some restrictions in place for your safety. These safety restrictions are part of the state’s graduated driver licensing system. Restrictions include having a licensed driver of at least 21 years of age in the front passenger seat while you drive, and you’ll only be allowed to drive during certain hours of the day.
