Learner's Permit – What are the Rules?

Getting a learner's permit in Florida means you have driving privileges, but they are restricted. Once you've obtained your permit you are required to do the following when operating a motor vehicle:

  • At all times you must be accompanied by a licensed driver in the front passenger seat. This driver must be 21 years of age or older.
  • For the first 3 months after the date you received your permit, you can only drive during daylight hours.
  • After the first 3 months, you may drive between the hours of 6:00 am and 10:00 pm.

What's Next - Driver's License!

If you are under the age of 18, the following rules apply to getting your driver's license. A regular driver's license, also known as a Class E license, requires the following:

  • You've had no moving traffic citations within 12 months of the issuance of your permit. (You may have 1 traffic violation where adjudication is withheld. Adjudication withheld is when you are not convicted of the offense, while still being held guilty).
  • For the first 3 months after the date you received your permit, you can only drive during daylight hours.
  • Your parent or legal guardian, or an responsible adult 21 years or older, has certified you've completed at least 50 hours of driving experience, including 10 hours at night.
  • You must pass a driving test.
