  • Anon: Mckenzie just said, strait from the Florida DMV site, that she still have to take the permit test. Like I mentioned above, you take your permit test, and you can either get your permit with it, or go directly on to your driving test, but regardless you still have to take the test.

  • I don't know about Florida, but in California no, you do not have to take the class. In California if you are 18 or older, you still have to take the permit test, but you do not have to keep it for 6 months (example - you can take the permit test, pass, and take the driving test the next day to get your license).
    Also, in Cali, if you are 18 with your permit, another 18 year old can teach you how to drive. Unlike if you are a minor, you have to have someone 25 or older in the car with you.

  • In most states you dont need a permit or a class. You have to be over 18, insured and pass the test.

  • My grandson is 18. We live in FL and he had to get his permit. He's never driven before and with FL drivers he's not wanting to but it limits him on getting a job and he has to get a job.

  • First Time Driver
    Anyone getting their first drivers license in Florida must take the required DATA course and DMV Test. This applies to adults and teens alike. If you are over 18 you would do the following to get your first drivers license:

    Complete the first time driver course (DATA)
    Complete the DMV test - at this point you can get your learner permit if desired
    Take the Behind the Wheel driving test at your local DMV
    Get your Operators License
