If you fail your FL Permit Test, you will be able to retake the test whenever you are ready. However, you will have to pay a $10 retest fee and you will have to schedule an appointment to take the test. Don't rush it. Retake the test when you feel confident that you will be able to pass.
After you pass your FL Permit Test, you will receive your learner's permit. You have to wait a year before you can take to your road test. You should practice driving during that time. Any time that you are driving you must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older. For the first three months after receiving your learner's permit, you are only allowed to drive during the day.
To give yourself the best chance of passing your FL Permit Test you should study all chapters and sections of the FL Driver's Manual. The exam will test your knowledge of speed limits, pavement markings, traffic signs, defensive driving and much more basic rules of the road.

It's a good idea to have your parent or legal guardian accompany you as they need to sign your application. If they are unable to accompany you, a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older can accompany you instead. Just remember to make sure your parent or legal guardian signs your application in the presence of a notary public official beforehand.
