If you have never been issued a drivers license in any state or country the state of Florida requires that you complete a Drug and Alcohol course.
Drug and Alcohol courses teach drivers how drugs and alcohol affect driving, traffic responsibilities and laws and techniques for safe driving.
Courses are commonly known as:
While teenagers getting their learners permit (restricted license) typically take this course, adults who have never held a drivers license must take it as well.
Once you complete a Drug and Alcohol course the State of Florida requires that you pass a written exam that tests your knowledge of road signs and road rules. The DMV exam is 50 questions. Approximately 5 of the questions test your knowledge of road signs and 45 questions test road rules.
Both the traffic schools listed offer a course that prepares you to pass the DMV test the first time. A high percentage of people fail the DMV test the first time they take it. In that situation you have to go home, make a new appointment and return the DMV to take the test over.
NOTE: As of 2015, the DMV Test CAN be taken online by those under 18 — if you are 18 or older you must take the DMV test at a local DMV office.
