The Florida Class E Knowledge Exam is the official DHSMV written exam designed to test the knowledge of those wishing to obtain a Florida driver’s license. This exam fulfills one of the requirements needed to obtain your learner's permit or driver's license in Florida. In addition to the permit written exam, you must also pass the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course.
Taking your Permit Exam online offers many benefits. For starters, it can be taken from anywhere with an internet connection at any time, allowing you to fit it into your schedule. Furthermore, the online exam format makes it easier for potential drivers to study and prepare for the exam and reduces the stress of taking the exam in person at a local DHSMV office. Also, the exam is available in multiple languages, including Arabic, Chinese, English, Haitian, Russian, and Spanish, allowing individuals who prefer to take the test in their native language the ability to do so. However, taking the exam online is only available for new drivers under 18. Older drivers will need to take the test in person per Florida requirements.
The Florida Written Class E Knowledge Exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions covering traffic laws, road signs, safety rules, and driver responsibility. According to the State of Florida rules, you will have 60 minutes to complete the exam with a passing score of 80% or greater. In addition, you will have only one attempt to pass the exam. You can take the exam up to 3 times online, but additional fees will apply for each extra exam. If you can't pass after the 3rd attempt, you must take the exam in person at a local DHSMV office.
Once you successfully pass the written knowledge exam, your results are instantly reported to the DHSMV and available at all DHSMV office locations. Also, we'll send you instructions on the next steps needed to pick up your driving permit.
Obtaining a driver's license may seem daunting at first, but it is pretty simple once broken down into individual steps. With some preparation and careful attention to detail, you should have no trouble earning your license.
The most important thing to remember when obtaining a driver's license is that safety comes first. Therefore, always wear your seat belt and drive with caution, following all the rules of the road. Doing so will help ensure that you remain safe while behind the wheel.
