Take Drivers Education in Florida
A) Enroll in a State-Approved Drivers Ed Course
Look online for a drivers ed course. The state also refers to this as Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education. If you’ve never held a regular drivers license in any state, country or jurisdiction, there’s no way around it. In a state-approved drivers education course you will learn:
- Florida traffic laws
- FL road signs
- Safe-driving practices and more
B) Complete Drivers Education
You must complete Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (drivers education) before taking the written exam and applying for a temporary Florida driving permit (restricted driver license). This applies to teen drivers between the ages of 15 and 17. New drivers older than 17 can move along to the next step.
After completing the course, first-time drivers who are under age 18 are eligible to take an online driver license test to meet the state permit requirements. American Safety Council is the only provider approved by the FL DHSMV to administer these online exams. For more, check out the next step on obtaining your first restricted driver's permit.
