How does the online test work?
If you are between 15 and 18 years old, you can take the Florida learners permit test online. You just need your parent or legal guardian to monitor the exam.
Get started by creating an account and completing registration and payment. You'll need the last 5 digis of your Social Security number, and your parent or legal guardian will also need their ID number to certify that they are proctoring the exam. This information is required by the DHSMV, but rest assured that we'll never share it with anyone.
The exam consists of 50 questions. During the test, you will be asked to verify your identity by answering personal validation questions based on information you provide during registration. You must answer these questions correctly.
When you pass the test, we'll let the Florida DHSMV know. No certificates or paperwork are necessary!
