Drivers Ed

For students who have completed their Drivers Ed course online:

Important message for students who have completed their Drivers Ed course online:
Although you have completed the course, there are still requirements needed in order to earn a driver’s permit/license. One requirement is receiving the Drug and Alcohol Course certificate (TLSAE Certificate) that is earned by taking the Drivers Education course. However, as stated in Assignment 6.02 of the course, it was required that you submit the last 4 digits of your social security number in order to generate a TLSAE Certificate at the end of the course. If you did not provide that information, the teacher was unable to issue you a certificate when the course ended. If you are still in need of the TLSAE Certificate, then you need to email your teacher the following information: your name, date of birth, and last 4 digits of your social security number.

Important message for students regarding the requirements for obtaining your license/learner permit:
Please note that the Drug and Alcohol Course certificate (TLSAE Certificate) that you receive when you complete the Drivers Education course is not the only thing that you need in order to get your Learner Permit at the DMV. You will also need to complete your Florida Permit Test.

FLVS is proud to announce that when you successfully complete the Driver Education course, you will now get the opportunity to take the learner’s license (permit) exam online for free. After the teacher issues your grade, you will receive a link in your VSA email granting you ONE free exam at Driversed.com. That email can take up to 31 days to be sent to you based on when you were activated in the course (you must be active in the course for 31 days before the teacher can issue your final grade, and the email with the link is sent a day after your grade is issued). If you need to take the Permit Test before then, it is recommended that you go to take it at the DMV. Once you pass this exam, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) will automatically be notified and you can visit their office to complete the licensing process. (Licensing fees may apply).

Please note: You are free to choose how to complete your learner’s license exam.
Here are your options:
- Driversed.com (your first attempt is free)
- Your local DMV
- Another DHSMV-approved online provider (exam fees may apply)

If you choose to take the Online Permit Test and pass you will need to go to the DMV to get your permit. A parent will need to be with you at the DMV. Please contact the DMV for current licensing fees. You will need three sources of identification. One must be an original birth certificate, passport or certification of naturalization. Proof of your social security number must also be provided. In addition, two proofs of residential address are required. To be sure that you have all of the correct documents, please visit www.gathergoget.com and check your own individual requirements.
