Florida Virtual School students will now be able to take the Florida learner’s license exam for free online after completing the Driver Education/Traffic Safety course!
FLVS has partnered with DriversEd.com to grant students a waiver for one free permit exam, worth $24.95, along with 50 practice exams.
Additionally, the course, which is also free, fulfills the state’s Traffic Laws and Substance Abuse Education four-hour course requirement, awards high school students a half credit elective, provides possibility for insurance discounts, and offers “behind the wheel training” for Orange and Polk county residents.
To qualify, students must be at least 14 and one-half years old to take the course and 15 years old to take the exam, and successfully complete the course by receiving a passing grade.
After passing the online exam, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will be notified. To obtain their permit, the student must then visit their local DHSMV office.
The organization created Gather Go Get which compiles a checklist of the documents students will need to obtain their permit.
