Florida Driver’s License Resources

Getting your Florida driver’s license is a very confusing process. You have to prepare for both the written and the on-road exam, and there’s a lot you need to know for the tests as well as what you need to bring to the DMV. Here’s our list of resources to aid you in the process of your Florida driver’s license.

Teen Permit Test

Although teens are typically the ones getting their permit, the Florida permit practice test is for anyone learning to drive for the first time. If you’ve never had a driver’s license before, you do need to get a permit first.

Renewing Driver’s License Test

If your Florida driver’s license has been expired for more than a year, then it is up to the examiner’s discretion as to whether or not you have to take the Florida driver’s license renewal test. If your license is expired, it’s worthwhile to practice at least once in case you do have to take a test.

New to State Driver’s License Test

If you are new to the state of Florida, and your current driver’s license is valid, then you don’t have to take the Florida new-to-state driver’s license test. If it’s expired, then you might have to take the test when you try to get your Florida driver’s license.

State Driving Manual / Handbook

If you could only have one resource to help you get your Florida driver’s license, then that one resource would be the Florida driving manual. It has all the information you need to know to pass the test, while being accurate and up-to-date. Click the link to download the latest version.

Road Signs Practice Test

Florida is actually one of the few states to have a separate road signs test, where you need to answer 15 of the 20 questions correctly to pass. Ensure that you pass this section with the Florida road signs practice test.

We also have our daily driver blog that publishes posts about preparing for the test, safe driving, and current driving laws. Below are a few links we recommend reading so that you are not only prepared to take the driver’s license test, but also prepared to drive with your license in the state:
