Drivers who have never held —or do not have in their possession— a driver license from any other state, country or jurisdiction, must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course before applying for a license in Florida.

Driver Education Licensing Assistance Program (DELAP) courses offered by some county school boards may substitute for this requirement.

Contact the local school board for further information. Drivers under 21 years of age who have received a notice of suspension for driving with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of .02 to .05 must complete a TLSAE course in order to reinstate their driver license on a hardship. A hardship license is a license restricted to “business” or “employment” purposes only.

Testing Options

In person –

The Class E Knowledge Exam can be taken at a service center.

Online/Classroom setting –

Any applicant under the age of 18 can take the Class E Knowledge Exam online.  There are approved third party administrators that provide this service.

NOTE: A Parent Proctoring Form is required for online tests, and must be notarized or signed in the presence of a driver license examiner.

Upon passing the Class E Knowledge Exam through a registered third party administrator, the exam information will automatically be submitted to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) and this information will also be available at all driver license offices.

Driver Education Licensing Assistance Program (DELAP) –

Many high school driver education classes are authorized to provide the Class E Knowledge Exam through DELAP.  Students who pass their Class E Knowledge Exam through an approved DELAP course in public or private schools will have the results entered into FLHSMV’s test records by their driver education teacher.

Please contact your local high school to determine if they are currently participating in DELAP.

Note: Section 322.56(3)(b) and (e), Florida Statutes, provides that a customer who passes the Class E Knowledge Exam or Driving Skills Test through an authorized third party administrator may be randomly selected for a no fee mandatory re-test without prior notice. After a re-test with a passing score is completed in a driver license or tax collector office, the license will be issued. A failed mandatory re-test will require a re-exam fee be collected at the next exam attempt.
