Who Needs To Take The First Time Drivers Course (TLSAE)?

The Florida 4-Hour First Time Driver Course, also known as the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) Course, is required by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for all first time driver’s license applicants under Florida Statute 322.095. If you’ve never received a driver’s license in any state, country, or jurisdiction, the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course has to be completed before applying for a learner’s permit in the state of Florida.

The TLSAE course is also required for Zero Tolerance: licensed drivers under 21 years of age who have received a notice of suspension for driving with an illegal blood alcohol level of .02 – .05. After successful completion of this class, students can submit their request to the Bureau of Administrative Review to start the process of obtaining a hardship license.

After this course is completed successfully, teenagers aged 14-17 can enroll in the Florida Learner’s Permit Exam to test for their learner’s permit. If you are 18 or over the age of 18, you are not eligible to take the Permit Exam online and will instead take the exam at your local DMV office to receive a Florida driver’s license.

  • Defensive and safe driving strategies to get you safely and confidently on the road;

What Is The 4-Hour First Time Driver Course?

The 4-Hour course explains how drugs and alcohol affect a person’s ability to drive, describes state laws and the responsibility of drivers, covers safe driving techniques, and explains how students can become more aware drivers while on the road.

If your school doesn’t offer a driver’s education course, we at the American Safety Institute are a DHSMV approved provider and offer an innovative and informative first-time driver’s course–and it’s completely online so there is no class you have to attend!

First Time Drivers Need Skills And Information To Be Safe Drivers.

Any teen driver or first-time driver needs to complete this class to apply for their learner’s permit in the state of Florida. The TLSAE course will teach safety methods when dealing with others on the road, including semi-trucks, other cars, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. The first-time driver class also describes the physiological effects, psychological effects, and the consequences of drug and alcohol abuse when drivers get behind the wheel. We discuss not only personal costs incurred due to drug and alcohol abuse, but the costs for society and the economy as well. This first-time driver’s class covers Florida state laws in relation to operating a motor vehicle, the risk factors that come with the driver’s attitude, and the behaviors of irresponsible drivers like speeding, reckless driving, and failure to stop at stop signs or red lights. One of the most important subjects we cover is the use of electronic devices while driving, with the focused intent of helping you the driver, understand that texting and driving, IS. JUST. PLAIN. DUMB.

The TLSAE course must be completed to apply for a learner’s permit or license in the state of Florida. In order to get a drivers license, students must first take the permit test. The NEFSC offers the First-Time Driver Course and Online Permit Exam as a combo package. If for some reason you feel you need more practice before you test, we offer a bundled package which includes the First-Time Driver’s Course, Online Permit Practice Tests, and the Online Learner’s Permit* Exam all-in-one combo deal!

*In order to take the Florida Permit Exam online, students must be under 18 years old. Anyone over the age of 18 has to complete the exam at their local DMV office.
