Frequently Asked Questions about Driver Education

You need to be at least 14 ½ years old to take this course and a minimum of 15 years old to apply for your learner’s license with the licensing office (fee required).
Students can work at their own pace but will need to be in the course at least 14 days from their first assignment. Typical students complete the course in 6-8 weeks working approximately 2-3 hours per week. Students can arrange an accelerated schedule with their teacher and finish nearer the two-week mark. Extended schedules are also available if needed. Our mission is that our students learn driving safety in an environment that fits their needs.

Because Florida Virtual School (FLVS) courses are online, there is no hands-on driving practice. However, this course does provide lessons and simulated driving activities to gain real-world driving knowledge. 

Driving lessons are highly recommended. After completing the course and earning a learner’s license, students are encouraged to take behind-the-wheel lessons with a local driving school. There are many free and low-cost options throughout the state of Florida. FLVS will provide you with resources for your county.

Upon successful completion of the FLVS Driver Education Course, you earn the required TLSAE certificate (commonly called a drug and alcohol certificate) and minors 15 and older can take the licensing exam (Class E Knowledge Exam) online for FREE. 

Before going to the license office, there is licensing information (fees, license locations, ID requirements) available in the Florida Driver Handbook.

You sure can. The course adapts its content based on whether a student has a learner’s license, a driver license, or no license at all.
Some insurance companies offer discounts for successful completion of Driver Education. Please check with your insurance provider.
