Technical Problems

1. It says I’m ineligible to take the learner’s permit test. What went wrong?
If you are not eligible to take the test online, please submit a ticket and we will issue a refund for your purchase of the exam. 
There are several instances where the State of Florida does not allow you to take the learner’s permit exam.
  1. If you are 18 or over, you must take the test in person at the DMV.
  2. If you have taken the learner’s permit test a total of three times (in person or online) then you must take the test in person at the DMV for any future attempts.
  3. You are between 14 ½ and 17 and have 15 unexcused school absences in 90 days. In this case, you will not be able to take the learner’s permit test or get your learner’s permit until you attend school for 30 days in a row with no unexcused absences or turn 18 and your school attendance office completes a License Reinstatement Form and sends it to the FLHSMV in Tallahassee.
  4. Your information (Name/Date of Birth/Last 5 of SSN) doesn’t match what is in the State of Florida system.
If you have taken and passed the permit exam over 1 year ago and never obtained a permit, the State of Florida requires you to take the test again at the DMV. You will not be able to take it online. 

2. I’m at the DMV and they can’t find a record for my test. What should I do?
Provide the clerk with the “S” number that we provide you with on your account dashboard. 
NOTE: The test at the end of the Drug and Alcohol Course is NOT the State Exam. Please be sure that you purchased and completed the official state exam. 
  1.  If you only see ONE product on your account dashboard and it is the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education Course (also known as the TLSAE or Drug and Alcohol Course), then you did NOT take the Florida Learner's Exam with us. You can register for the state exam here.

  1.  If you took the Learner's Permit Bundle, your dashboard should look like this when you have completed everything. Under "Enrolled Exams" you will find the official state test. Once you pass it, you will see you S Number listed under "Exam Status" and it will be marked as completed and passed. If you ONLY bought the exam, you will only see the exam listed on your account dashboard.
  1. If you took and passed the state exam and the DMV is having trouble finding you, please reach out to us. Occasionally, the State of Florida has duplicate records for an individual and they need to be merged before the clerks at the DMV can see your completion. In this case, we will need to reach out to our contact at the State and have them resolve the issue on their end.  
If you still need assistance, please give us a call at (844) 602-1555, reach out to us on chat, or submit a ticket and we’ll work with the state or DMV to resolve the issue.
