Do You Have to Take Driver’s Ed in Florida?

People learn how to drive from a variety of sources: driver’s education classes, parents who drive, and even friends or older siblings with licenses. However, one question that many people have is whether it’s required for a person to take driver’s education classes in Florida in order to get their driver’s license.
In short, the answer is yes.

Obtaining Your Florida Learner’s License

To ultimately get your Florida driver’s license, you will need to either hold your Florida learner’s license for at least one year or turn 18, whichever comes first. Either way, you will be required to pass various exams and provide proof regarding different qualifications.
For example, in order to obtain your learner’s license, you must be at least 15 years old and provide proof that you have completed a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course. You’ll also need to pass a hearing test, a vision test, and the Class E Knowledge Exam.
In addition, you’ll need to bring documents to prove your identity and your address. To then get your driver’s license, you will also need to pass the Class E Driving Skills Test.
