Different states have different requirements for getting a driver's license. In the State of Florida, people who have never held a driver's license (or who no longer have an active license) are required to take a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course before they can get a driving permit. While this requirement may be substituted by certain Driver Education Licensing Assistance Program (DELAP) offerings, the easiest way is to take the TLSAE course online.
Drug and Alcohol Course
The TLSAE course is a requirement for any person getting a learner’s license or driver’s license in Florida. Every applicant must pass this Drug and Alcohol Course as a prerequisite for taking the state’s permit exam. The TLSAE is offered as both a classroom-based course and online, but the DHSMV must authorize the company offering the course.
In some cases, the TLSAE may be combined with other offerings. If the driver is under the age of 18, the Drug and Alcohol Course may be combined with the DHSMV Permit Test Online. It includes road rules and road signs. This option is not available for drivers that are 18 years of age or older. Drivers age 18 and older are required to take their permit tests in a DHSMV office.
Benefits of Taking Courses Online
Taking the Florida Drug and Alcohol Course online means that you can fit the class into your schedule, on your time. Why bother scheduling a classroom session, driving to that location, and sitting in a class when you could take the course from the comfort of your own home? Plus, if you take the TLSAE online, you can add in the permit test as long as you are under the age of 18 as long as you pick the right provider.
People who are 18 years of age or older may also benefit from bundling the Florida permit test with the Drug and Alcohol Course. While those students cannot take the permit test online, they will get study time and a free DMV practice test so they will know if they could pass the permit test before they ever travel to the Florida DHSMV.
