Do I have to take drivers education or driver training to get a Florida driver license? Florida

Yes, but only if you're younger than 18.

Here's what you need to do to comply with the Florida drivers license procedures:

FL Drivers Education

You must successfully complete a state-approved Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (i.e., drivers education) course through your school or a third-party provider. This will help supply you with some of the knowledge necessary to be a safe driver.

Before going to the DMV to take your written permit test, it's smart to take a few practice tests. This will give you a good indication of how prepared you are for the test, and help you see what areas you need to further study.

FL Drivers Training

You'll need to compile at least 50 hours of supervised driving practice with a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old. Be sure to include a minimum of 10 hours of night-driving practice.

It's a good idea - although not required - to also take a driver training course; doing so can refine your driving skills and reflexes. And, it'll get you even more prepared for the driver license road test.
