6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys. I received my EAD last week and now i'm planning to move forward by getting a learner's permit. I am a first time driver. I am bit confused as to what should i do first and what are the requirements. Can anyone help me out? I would also ask for some tips for the exam. :)

Take your EAD, SSN card and 2 proofs of address and a proof of completion of DATA course http://www.highschooldriver.com/data-courseto a DMV office. I think the permit is around 40$ plus DATa course fee. They'll check your eye sight and if able to verify your status you should get the permit right away.

Exam is pretty easy - first you'll do road rules and signs 20 q's and then another 20 q's on traffic, insurance etc. You can find free practice tests online and read the FL drivers manual to learn.

Driving part is super easy. I was asked to start your car, use indicator and break to test. Then was asked 1 or 2 q's (how to safely park uphill) and then taken for about 10 min "ride" where I had to stop on a stop sign, accelerate to 30mps and safely stop, drive on reverse (make sure you look over your shoulder), do a 3 way turn (don't forget indicators) and do 90 degree front parking.


It is not where I breathe but where I love that I live.

Hello thanks for your reply.

Is it okay to take the data course now and get my learners permit later on? 40 questions and not 50?

You're right. It's 50 questions. You need to get at least 40 right to pass. And I'm pretty sure completion of DATA course is required to get the permit but you may want to contact dmv office to confirm.
