Florida Practice Tests at Driver’s Prep

We take driver license and permit practice test questions from a pool of more than 1,000 questions. They cover all aspects of the Florida Driver Handbook.

The large number of practice questions helps you pass the exam – guaranteed!

Each DMV practice test in this series has 25 random questions.

After each question, you’ll get instant feedback. If your answer isn’t correct, there is a short comment to help you look up the answer in the Florida Official Handbook.

Note that the real Florida test has 50 questions.

Why Have We Shortened the Practice Tests?

Our studies show that our users are much more likely to take many practice tests when tests are shorter (25 instead of 50 questions). After practicing, users have been exposed to more questions and do better on the real exam.

We help you pass your Florida DMV exam

How Should You Study for the Permit Test?

The first step is to get the latest version of the Florida official Driver Handbook. It is available at your local tax collector or online. When you’ve studied the handbook, you can use the practice tests at Driver’s Prep to check your progress. You will quickly know if you are ready for the real knowledge test or not.

The passing score in Florida is 80 percent, which means you must correctly answer at least 40 out of 50 questions, or 20 of 25 question on a practice test.

It is a good idea to aim higher when you practice. We recommend that you take enough sample tests to make sure you can easily reach a score of 100 percent.

But don’t take test after test just to get a higher score. You need to truly understand answers and explanations.

Read up on mistakes and try to understand why you missed a question. Did you misunderstand the question or answer? Did you read too fast? Or did you simply not know the answer?

Understand Florida Graduated License Law

For drivers under 18 years, it is important to understand the graduated license system.

The purpose of the system is to help teen drivers between 15 and 17 years to gain driving experience under lower-risk conditions. This means that a license for drivers under 18 years comes with certain restrictions.

1   Step 1: Learner’s License (Learner’s Permit)

If you are under 18 years, your first step is to apply for a learner’s license.

To get a learner’s license, you must be at least 15 years old. You must also:

    Show proof of a completed Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course.
    Pass a vision and hearing test at a service center
    Pass the Knowledge exam
    Provide necessary identity documents

When driving with a learner’s permit, you must always be accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years and sits beside you in a front seat. For the first three months with a permit, you can only drive during daylight hours. After the first three months, you may drive between the hours of 6:00 am and 10:00 pm.

Before you can move on to the next step, you must hold the learner’s license for a minimum of 12 months or until your 18th birthday, whichever comes first. You must practice driving for at least 50 hours, 10 of which must be at night.

2   Step 2: Restricted License (Intermediate License)

You must be at least 16 years old, have held a learner’s license for at least 12 months and provide a log of 50 hours of supervised driving.

After passing your skills test, FLHSMV issues an intermediate license with nighttime driving restrictions.

This means that you may drive alone, but at nighttime.

When you are 16 years, you may not drive between 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. unless you are driving to or from work OR accompanied by a licensed driver 21 years or older. When you turn 17 years the curfew is between 1 a.m. to 5 a.m.

Unlike many other states, the Florida intermediate license has no passenger restrictions.

To be eligible for an unrestricted driver license in Florida, you must be at least 18 years old.

If you have not held any type of license before, you must complete a TLSAE course before you apply.
