Driver Education/Traffic Safety

In the Driver Education/Traffic Safety course, students will:

Don't Text and Drive. Texting Takes Young Lives.
  • Study the Highway Transportation System, road signs, rules of the road, accident avoidance, and making good choices behind the wheel.
  • Develop the skills necessary to become a safe, responsible Florida driver.
  • View many road simulations throughout the course designed to help increase their knowledge of real world driving.
  • Receive the Traffic Law & Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) Training waiver through the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The State of Florida requires all drivers complete this prior to taking the learner's permit exam.

The FLVS Driver's Ed course has been proven to significantly reduce traffic violations and DUI incidents.*
