Acquiring a Learners Permit

First it’s important to make it clear that before obtaining a license you must acquire a permit for your behind the wheel test.  The process to get your learners permit requires you to take a drug and alcohol traffic education course and a knowledge test. Both can be completed online.

Behind the Wheel Test

In order to  get your drivers license in Florida, you have to take a behind the wheel skills driving test which includes performing specific maneuvers.  All Florida Road Test is Florida’s largest 3rd party administrator of the Class E Skills Test. We are able to offer this test in either your vehicle or ours, as well as offer practice prior to your test.  Learn more about Road Test Practice 

The most common question we receive about the driving test is “What exactly will I be tested on?” See below for a list of common skills test maneuvers.

Maneuvers You will have to Perform in the Florida Driving Test:

  • Turn Around
    Turn your car around in a 30 to 40-foot space. This is historically known as a three-point turn. Awareness and precision is key in this maneuver.
  • Shifting Gears
    If your car is manual shift you must be able to shift smoothly.
  • Parking
    Park your car in a straight in parking spot. You should be centered in the parking spot. No more parallel parking test.
  • Stop Quickly
    Driving at 20 MPH you are expected to make a quick and safe stop when the examiner tells you to stop.
  • Backing Up
    You will be asked to backup for roughly 50 feet at a slow speed. You should turn your head and look to the rear not use the rear view mirror or a camera.
  • Stop Signs
    You will be expected to come to a complete stop and use your turn signals to indicate if you are turning. Then you are expected to proceed into the intersection only when it is safe.
  • Signal and Turn
    Get into the correct lane and signal that you are turning for 100 feet before you turn.
  • Stay in the Correct Lane
    Drive in the right lane except on a one-way street. Only change lanes if it is safe.
