Class E Exam Requirements – Minimum Age 16

Note: A new resident exchanging a valid out-of-state driver license for a Florida driver license will be required to pass the vision and hearing tests only. If you are under 18 and are not married, your license application must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Step-parents may not sign for you unless they have legally adopted you.

Note: Teens applying for a Class E driver license will be required to:

  • Hold learner’s license for 12 months;
  • Not incur any traffic convictions; 
  • Be certified by a parent or guardian to have at least 50 hours of behind-the-wheel training, with at least 10 driving hours conducted at night.

Teens issued a traffic citation can elect to attend a traffic driving school to avoid a conviction.
