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.
