Florida DHSMV Requirements for DL Applicants

Automobile License

Florida offers Class E driver license for all types of passenger vehicles with a passenger seat configuration of up to 14 persons, for non-commercial trucks and vehicles with GVWR under 26 001 pounds and for 2- or 3-wheeled motorcycles, mopeds, etc. The license is required for all FL residents and non-residents driving on the public roads, except:

  • government employees and the Armed Forces members, including their families;
  • licensed drivers from other states traveling between their home and work in Florida on a regular basis;
  • non-residents, holding NCDL from any other U.S. states or an International driver permit complemented with U.S. DL;
  • non-resident contractors of companies working for the U.S. government;
  • non-resident students studying at FL colleges;
  • non-resident migrant farm workers holding DL from another state.

Florida DHSMV allows qualifying for Class E license from the age of 16, but you may put in for a learner’s license when you turn 15. Regardless of age, novice drivers, who have never held DL, must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education Course before addressing the DHSMV. Then, you have to collect identification documents and undergo an eye examination and an FL driver license permit test . The package of documents must cover:

  • primary identification;
  • SSN;
  • residence (must be supported with 2 documents).

Minors have to present a parental consent form and to prove their school attendance. Both Class E and learner’s license fees make up $48 that must be paid prior to the testing. Class E knowledge exam includes 50 questions, 80% of which must be answered correctly.

When you got a learner’s license, you have to hold it for 12 months or wait until your 18th birthday before applying for Class E DL. If you are over 18, you don’t have to wait and can move on to a road exam as soon as you are ready.

Motorcycle License

People who moved to Florida from other states with a motorcycle endorsement do not have to complete a mandatory motorcycle course in the state, except residents of Alabama. Persons under the age of 16 and those who have only a learner’s license are not allowed to operate motorcycles on state roads. You need to earn an appropriate endorsement in your DL, or a motorcycle-only license to gain this right. Regardless of the license type and your age, you are required to complete an approved safety course specifically for motorcycle riders. If you hold Class E license and have already completed the course, you must pay $7 fee and present your ID to the DL office to receive the endorsement.

Commercial Driver’s License

General rules apply to applicants for CDL in FL: they must be at least 18 to conduct intrastate transportation and at least 21 to transport passengers, cargo, and hazardous materials between states. In both cases, they must have a Class E license and undergo pre-driving testing to obtain commercial learner’s permit before Florida CDL practice test. The pre-driving testing includes a number of exams with a mandatory general knowledge examination. Also, the applicants have to pay the $75 CDL fee and $7 fee for each endorsement.

When getting ready for your knowledge exams, you may need some help in learning and training the tests . The Driver-Start.com project offers effective methods to boost the process and convenient training tools to practice driving test online. You are free to choose the method you like on the Driver Start website or by downloading our app developed for mobile devices – available in the  App Store  and  Google Play . Also, you will find a lot of useful information collected from FL FHSMV official sources to help you in obtaining the desired class of DL.

Step-by-Step Guide on Driving Stick Shifts

While the sales of manual cars in the USA have been decreasing significantly since the 90s, stick shifts are still popular in European and Asian countries, especially in developing economies, which is often explained by the price. Undeniably, vehicles with manual transmission are usually cheaper than automatics, but this is hardly the only reason for choosing a manual car. Experts and auto enthusiasts hold that driving a manual vehicle allows the driver to gain a completely new experience that is appreciated by drivers. They highlight the fact that many powerful sports cars come with manual transmissions and this is done for a reason – you can better feel the car and the speed while gaining full control over the gears. For the same reason, driving a manual car can be safer in winter with its slippery roads, but this also depends on your driving skills.

Florida Written Drivers License Test

Are you ready to take the DHSMV written test? Florida drivers who want to earn a learner license or drivers license are required to pass a Florida written drivers license test, also known as the Class E knowledge test. Find out what you’ll be tested on and how to prepare.

What’s on the Florida DHSMV Written Test?

The Florida written test has 50 multiple choice questions on Florida traffic laws, signs, signals, and markings.

There are two parts to the test: 10 questions on road signs and 40 questions on road rules. You need a score of at least 80% to pass the test.

Getting Ready for the Test

All the material on the Florida written drivers license test comes from the Florida Driver Handbook . Reading and reviewing the handbook is a great way to study for the test.

Every driver applying for his or her first Florida drivers license is required to complete a TLSAE Drug and Alcohol course . Going over the course material is another good way to prepare for the written test.

You can get an idea of what the Florida DHSMV written test will be like by taking practice tests. Get ready for the real test by checking your score and reviewing your answers to see what areas you need to improve on.

Where to Take the Florida DHSMV Written Test

The Florida written drivers license test is available both in person and online.

If you want to take the test in person, go to any Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) office or an approved third-party tester.

If you want to take the test online, you must be under 18 years old. You can take the online test with any DHSMV-approved online provider of the test. After you pass the online test, you still have to go to a Driver License Office to pick up your learner license.

Getting Your Learner License

When you go to the Driver License Office to apply for your learner permit, make sure you bring all the required documents:

  • Proof of identification, Social Security number, and residential address
  • Parent/Guardian On-line Test Proctoring Form (for applicants under 18 who took the Florida written drivers license test online)
  • Parental Consent Form – Minor Driver Applicant Form (for applicants under 18 )

If you didn’t take the Florida written drivers license test with a third-party tester, you’ll have to take the test at the Driver License Office. All applicants must also pass a vision test and a hearing test, and pay a license issuance fee .
