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
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.
