The Florida DATA, also known as the Florida Drug and Alcohol Course or the Florida Traffic Law Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course, is a 10 unit course covering the facts about drug and alcohol use as it relates to the operation of a motor vehicle. The course is a requirement of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) for all first-time drivers in the state of Florida, regardless of age.

What Will I Learn by Taking the Florida DATA Course?

The Florida DATA course goes in depth about specific information relating to drunk or intoxicated driving including the penalties associated with this crime as well as the effects drugs and alcohol have on the human mind and body, and how this impairs the ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. The Florida DATA course will also dispel some common, pervasive myths about alcohol and intoxicated driving and provide course participants with the real facts underlying these myths.

What Can I Expect from the Florida DATA Course?

The Florida DATA course is divided into 10 units, each of which will cover a different topic relating to drugs and alcohol or vehicle and driving safety. Each unit will include engaging video content, graphics and animations, as well as interactive quizzes to boost information retention. The course is designed to be informative and easy to pay attention to.

At the end of the course you will need to complete a final exam in order pass the course. However, rest assured that the final exam has a very low failure rate and you will have multiple attempts to pass it. Once you have successfully completed the course and passed the final exam, Ticket School will automatically report your completion to the Florida DHSMV and when you go to apply for your driver license your completion of the Florida DATA course should automatically appear on your record in the state database. Remember the Florida DATA course is mandatory for all new drivers. You will also need to complete your Florida Driver License Test which you can also take online through Ticket School.
