Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE)

The Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course is a 4-hour seminar required of any person who has never held a regular driver's license prior to their application for a driving permit in the state of Florida. (Drivers who are under 21 and receive a notice of suspension for driving with a BAC of 0.02 – 0.05 must complete a TLSAE course in order to reinstate their driver's license on a hardship basis.)

This Internet-based course is comprised of six easy-to-read chapters and a compelling video presentation. You must pass a 40-question final exam by correctly answering at least 32 questions (80%) in order to successfully complete the course. Completions will be electronically reported to the DHSMV, and you'll get a paper Certificate of Completion for your records.

Practice Permit Test

Our Practice Permit Test program helps you to get comfortable with the driver's permit testing process, and it allows yet another opportunity to review the material before attempting the "official" test. These dual benefits will help you to build the confidence you'll need to pass the test quickly and easily on your first try!

Our question database contains enough questions to populate three complete tests with unique questions. The low price of admission to our online Practice Permit Test program gets you two weeks' worth of access to the service (from the first time you access this program), however, and you may take practice tests as many times as you like during that period.

This course may only be taken as an add-on to our TLSAE and Permit Test courses.

Online Driver's Permit Test

Unlicensed drivers who are under the age of 18 and who complete their TLSAE course with us have the option of taking their Driver's Permit Test through this website (Third-Party Testing [Florida's Class E Knowledge Test] provided by Traffic Safety Consultants, Inc. [dba Cheapest In Florida / Funny in Florida]). The flexibility and convenience of this online option means you can skip the congestion, long lines, and waiting at your local DHSMV office. Instead, you'll be able to relax and pass the test from the comfort of your own home.

By DHSMV regulation, a parent must be present during the testing session. Before you access the test, your parent will be asked to provide certain identifying information and to certify statements that attest that they've monitored your test session.

Each driver's permit test (Class E Knowledge Test) consists of 50 multiple-choice subject matter questions (questions related to driving and traffic). Periodically throughout the test, you will also be asked to respond to "personal identity validation questions." If you answer a personal identity validation question incorrectly (the answer does not match the answer given to that question during your registration process), you will be asked a different question; a second incorrect answer will result in the termination of your testing session (a "failure" of the test). You are allotted a total of 60 minutes to complete each attempt at the test.

You are required to correctly answer at least 40 (80%) of the subject matter questions in order to pass the test.

You are allowed three opportunities to pass the test in the online format. If you fail your first or second attempt at the test, you may attempt the test again, but will be required to pay a DHSMV-assessed retesting fee of $20 for your second and third attempts. If you fail your third attempt at an online test, you will have to go to your local DHSMV or tax collector office to take a paper-based version of the test; the online testing option will no longer be available to you.

Your test scores are electronically reported to the DHSMV and, like your TLSAE completion, will be available to DHSMV staff when you go to your local office to get your permit.
