What happens after I pass my FL Driving Exam?

Once you have passed your FL Driving Exam, your examiner will collect your driver's license fee and issue your license.

How To Get A Florida Driver’s License

Driving is a wonderful privilege, but it’s not a right.

Before you can get your license in Florida, the state Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) will test you to make sure you know the rules of the road and are competent behind the wheel.

The process looks a little different, depending on your age and experience, but below are the different ways to get a driver’s license in Florida.

Florida Driver’s License (Under 18 Years Old)

If you’re under 18 years old, you’ll have to go through a graduated license program before you can earn your full license.

You can begin that process once you turn 15 years old, by applying for a Florida learner’s permit.

Florida Learner’s Permit (Age 15-17)

Before you can apply for the designation, you must complete a Florida Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course.

Once you’ve finished the course, you can apply for your learner’s permit. Schedule an appointment with your closest FLHSMV office, and bring:

At this appointment, you’ll also have to pass several tests, including:

  • A vision test.
  • A hearing exam.
  • Your written knowledge exam.

Once the tests are passed, fee is paid, and paperwork gone through, you’ll be issued your Florida driver’s permit.

Your permit comes with several driving restrictions, including:

  • No driving during the dark for the first 3 months.
  • No driving after 10 p.m. after the first 3 months.
  • Only driving with a licensed passenger, age 21 or older.

Florida Provisional License

The next step toward earning your full Florida driver’s license is obtaining your provisional license. You can apply for this license once/if:

  • You’re at least 16 years old.
  • You’ve had your permit for at least 12 months, or until you turn 18, whichever happens first.
  • No traffic incidents occurred while practicing on your permit.
  • You’ve completed at least 50 hours of behind-the-wheel driving experience.
    • At least 10 hours must be at night.

To officially upgrade your permit, schedule another appointment with the FLHSMV and bring:

  • Your Florida driver’s permit.
  • Certification that you’ve completed the behind-the-wheel hours. (Can be supervised by a parent/guardian.)
  • The appropriate fee.

You’ll also need to pass a road test before being issued your provisional license. You can take the test either:

  • At the FLHSMV office.
  • Through a third-party Driver’s Ed school.
    • If you take the test this way, you must also bring proof of passing the test to your FLHSMV appointment.

Again, there are a few restrictions attached to your provisional license, including:

  • If you’re 16 years old: No unsupervised driving between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • If you’re 17 years old: No unsupervised driving between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

Full Florida License (Under Age 18)

If you’re using the Florida graduated license program to earn your license, your provisional license will automatically upgrade to a full license once you turn 18.

You’ll once again have to visit the FLHSMV to upgrade the document. Make sure to bring:

At that point, the state will issue your full license.

Florida Driver’s License (Age 18 or Older)

Earning your FL driver’s license once you’re 18 years old or older is a bit more of a streamlined process. Essentially, you can skip out on the permit process, along with its mandatory waiting periods and driving restrictions.

If you’ve never had a license before, you’ll have to pass a Florida Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course. You must do this before visiting the Motor Vehicles office.

To get started, schedule an appointment with the FLHSMV and bring:

  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Florida address.
  • Certificate of TLSAE course completion, if necessary.
  • The Florida license fee.

This appoint also requires you to pass several tests, including:

  • A hearing exam.
  • A vision test.
  • Your FL written knowledge exam.
  • Your FL behind-the-wheel driving test.

After passing the tests, showing the appropriate paperwork, and paying your fee, you’ll be issued your Florida driver’s license!

Transferring an Out-of-State License

Welcome to Florida!

If you’re moving to the Sunshine State, you’ll have to transfer your out-of-state license within 30 days of establishing your Florida residency.

Luckily, the transfer process is easy. Simply schedule an appointment with the FLHSMV and:

  • Bring:
    • Proof of your:
      • Identity.
      • Social Security number.
      • Florida address.
    • Your out-of-state-license.
    • The Florida license fee.
  • Pass a vision exam.

Once the above is completed, you’ll be issued your new Florida license.

Florida DMV Motorcycle Permit & License Info

Florida Motorcycle License

There are two ways to legally ride a motorcycle in Florida: By adding a motorcycle endorsement to your regular license, or by earning a “motorcycle only” license.

Adding a Motorcycle Endorsement

You can apply for a motorcycle endorsement if:

  • You’re at least 16 years old.
  • You already have a regular Florida driver’s license.

Start the process by enrolling in a Florida basic rider course.

Once you pass, you’ll be free to apply for your endorsement by scheduling an appointment with the FLHSMV and bringing:

  • Your basic rider course certificate of completion.
    • Must be completed within 1 year of applying.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Florida residency.
  • The Florida motorcycle endorsement fee.

You’ll then be issued a new license that includes your motorcycle endorsement.

Florida “Motorcycle Only” License

To get a specific license just for your motorcycle, you must:

  • Be at least 16 years old.
  • If under 18, hold at least a learner’s permit, for one year, with no traffic violations.

To begin the process, you’ll have to enroll in a Florida basic rider course.

Once you’ve successfully passed the course, schedule an appointment with the FLHSMV and bring:

  • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Social Security number.
    • Florida address.
  • Your basic rider course certificate of completion.
  • Your Florida learner’s permit, if applicable.
  • The state motorcycle license fee.

You’ll also have to pass the regular driver’s license written knowledge test at this appointment. (You may find it helpful to practice first.)

Once the test is successfully passed, the fee paid, and the paperwork sorted, you’ll be issued your Florida motorcycle license.

Florida CDL Requirements

Florida Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

In order to apply for a commercial driver’s license (CDL) in Florida, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Already have a valid Florida driver’s license.

Once that’s established, the first step toward earning your FL CDL is getting your commercial learner’s permit (CLP).

Florida Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP)

Before you do anything driving-related, you’ll have to:

After that’s been taken care of, schedule an appointment with the FLHSMV and:

  • Bring:
    • Your FL driver’s license.
    • Proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Florida residency.
    • Your satisfactory medical exam.
  • The Florida CPL fee.
  • Pass a:
    • Vision test.
    • Written knowledge test.

At this point, you’ll be issued your commercial learner’s permit. You’ll have to practice for at least 14 days before you can take the road test.

Florida Commercial Driver’s License

Once at least 14 days have passed and you feel comfortable, schedule an appointment with the FLHSMV to take your road test.

At this appointment, you’ll be tested on:

  • Vehicle inspections.
  • Basic controls.
  • Driving on the road.

After passing the exams, you’ll pay the appropriate fee and be issued your Florida commercial driver’s license!
