You will need to hold your permit for a year, if you are under 18.


Under Florida DMV guidelines, you must be 14 years old or older to sign up and complete the driver's ed learners permit course. You may not apply for your learners permit until your 15th Birthday.

When you turn 15, you are eligible to apply for a learners permit if you have completed the required driver's ed course mentioned above. You then must hold your learners permit license for at least twelve months before applying for a full license.


Step 1: All first time drivers in the State of Florida are required to take a driver's ed class called the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse and Education course before applying for their learners permit. By taking this course, first time drivers learn how alcohol and other drugs affect their ability to drive, laws and responsibilities, about safe driving techniques, and how to increase their awareness on our roadways.


Step 2: The DMV Permit Exam consists of two written tests:

1. 20 multiple choice questions regarding the rules of the road. (You must answer 15 correctly to pass)

2. 20 multiple choice questions regarding road signs. (You must answer 15 correctly to pass)

All new drivers are encouraged to study for this written test so you don't take a chance on standing in line at the DMV Office only to go home empty-handed. The Florida DMV Handbook provides everything you need to know to pass the test. You can also take our practice permit test online - it's like having the answers BEFORE you take the DMV Written Exam!


Step 3: The DMV exam includes the road rules and road signs written tests, a vision test and a hearing test. The written test is available online and once you pass, you can take your certificate to the DMV office where you will complete the vision / hearing tests and provide the documents required to obtain your learners permit. The written exam is also available at the DMV office, but many teens choose to take the exam online to save time.

Before you head to the DMV, make sure you have all of the following required documents to get your learners permit:

•Proof that you completed a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course

•DMV Exam waiver number (if you elected to take the exam online)

•One primary and one secondary form of identification, which must be original or certified

•Social Security Number, if issued

•Parental Consent Form, which must be signed in the presence of a driver license examiner or notarized if parent or guardian will not be present.


•Be at least 15 years old.

•Pass vision, road signs and road rules tests.

•Have the signature of one parent (or guardian) on the parent consent form, if under age 18.

•Completion of Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education Course.

•Primary Identification, Proof of Social Security Number and Proof of residential address (Please see Identifying Yourself for required documentation).

•Must be in compliance with school attendance, if under 18.

The following requirements must be met in order to obtain a regular Class E license:

•Must hold the learner's license for 12 months or until the 18th birthday.

•Must have NO moving traffic violation convictions 12 months from the issue date of the Learner's license.

•May have one moving traffic violation conviction within 12 months from the issue date of the learner's license, if adjudication is withheld.

•A parent, legal guardian or responsible adult over 21 years old must certify that the driver has 50 hours of driving experience, of which 10 hours must be at night.

Bush supporters: Can you please explain to me why some of you believe GWB is the best president in

Bush supporters: Can you please explain to me why some of you believe GWB is the best president in history?

I don't think that Bush is the best president we ever had but this list can not be denied.

Bush critics bemoan the state of relations with supposed European allies like France and Germany, but overlook the improvements in the Japanese alliance.

Yet Japan is becoming a partner to America comparable only to Britain — a staunch ally in the region, and a global partner in other issues around the globe; two powers that share similar values and vision, willing to pool resources to address daunting political, economic and, even, security problems.

Since that fateful day in September, there have been no attacks on U.S. soil. This is the accomplishment of which the President can be most proud. The Democratic administration that preceded his did not similarly take the terrorist menace seriously, and the result was ever escalating attacks on American targets through the last decade. “Our greatest responsibility is the active defense of the American people,”

The United States is indeed safer without Saddam Hussein around.

Despite the whining and complaining of the "Henny Penny the Sky Is Falling" crowd, America's straight-talking, hard-nosed internationalism is having a salutary effect on hot spots around the globe, especially in Asia.

Keeping the peace across the vast continent is no small accomplishment. Asia is a veritable tinderbox of potential armed conflict, including being home to the world's most dangerous military flashpoints: China-Taiwan, North-South Korea and India-Pakistan. Its nations -- some of them nuclear powers -- boast the world's largest and (after ours) most capable armies. Yet despite serious tensions, the region remains surprisingly at peace.

Why? Because of the strength of American political resolve, diplomatic heft and military might. Plain and simple.

Thanks largely to the President's faith–based initiative, a fuller portrait of the faithful is emerging. Moved by his own experience of faith in tackling a drinking problem, Bush has sought to create more civic space for religious ministries helping the poorest of the poor. "Starting now," the federal government is adopting a new attitude to honor and not restrict faith–based and community initiatives." The result: religious charities are regularly invited to congressional hearings, get frequent presidential visits, enjoy lots of favorable media, and are the hottest topic at conferences on religion in America.

President Bush Signed The "Gulf Opportunity Zone Act Of 2005." To further spur economic growth, the President proposed - and Congress passed - provisions for a Gulf Opportunity Zone, with tax relief and loans to be provided to businesses and entrepreneurs in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

President Bush Signed The "Stem Cell Therapeutic And Research Act Of 2005." This legislation creates a new Federal program to collect and store cord blood and expands the current bone marrow registry program to also include cord blood.
