Florida TLSAE Course Requirement
In order to get your Florida learner’s license you must do two things: 1) successfully complete a Florida drug and alcohol course (a.k.a. TLSAE); 2) successfully pass the Florida learner’s permit test. We offer both 100% online!
How It Works
To take the online test, you will need to provide your full name, date of birth, and the last five digits of your social security number or a valid Florida ID card number. If the system determines that you are eligible, you can continue to load the exam. You have 60 minutes to take the exam and will receive one question at a time. You must answer 40 of the 50 questions correctly in order to pass.
What happens when you pass?
Immediately after passing the exam, our system reports the result electronically to the Florida DHSMV system and you will be given a confirmation page that contains your testing information. We recommend you print that page and bring it with you to the driver license / tax collector’s office just in case they have any trouble finding your test result. As long as you have also completed the TLSAE course, you will be eligible to get your Florida learner’s license. Your learner’s license will allow you to drive with certain restrictions in place; for example, whenever you are driving, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and occupies the front passenger seat of the vehicle. You will also be restricted to driving during certain hours until you have had your license for a certain period of time. These restrictions are part of Florida’s graduated driver licensing system.
What can I do if I don’t pass?
If you do not pass, you will be given an opportunity to study the handbook further and/or register to take the test again. If you choose to take the exam again, you will need to register again and create a new account in our system. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) allows up to three (3) online attempts at the exam to achieve a passing score. If you are unsuccessful after three attempts, you will be required to take the test in person at your local driver license or tax collector’s office.
Note: Even if you pass the online driver license test, you still might be randomly selected by DHSMV to take the test again in person when you go to the driver license or tax collector’s office to apply for your learner’s permit. If you are selected for re-testing in person, you will be required to pass, regardless of any passing score you received on the online test. This is a DHSMV rule over which we have no control, and it is intended to ensure that fraud in the online testing environment is kept to a minimum.
