Traffic Law & Substance Abuse Education Course Schools

 

ATTENTION CONSUMER/STUDENT: PAPER CERTIFICATES ARE NOT ACCEPTED FOR ANY LICENSING PURPOSE. ALL COURSE PROVIDERS ELECTRONICALLY REPORT SCHOOL COMPLETIONS TO THE DEPARTMENT AND THAT INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE TO DRIVER LICENSE AND PARTICIPATING TAX COLLECTOR OFFICES AT THE TIME OF DRIVER LICENSE ISSUANCE.

Not all course providers offering Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education Courses (TLSAE) require the consumer/student to purchase a completion certificate in order to take the course. Please know that you do not need a paper certificate to obtain your driver license.


Reasons for Attending Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education

If you have never held a regular driver license in any state, country, or jurisdiction, you must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course before applying for a temporary driving permit (restricted driver license) in the state of Florida. The driver education courses offered by some county school boards may substitute for this requirement. Please contact your local school board for further information.

If you are under 21 years old and receive a notice of suspension for driving with a BAL of .02 to .05, you must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course in order to reinstate your driver license on a hardship basis.
