Reporting Your TLSAE Course Completion to the FLHSMV

Finished up your Florida TLSAE/ Drug and Alcohol Course? Firstly, let us say congrats! You’re one step closer to getting your driver’s license, which means one step closer to freedom. Hooray! Right now you’re probably wondering where to go from here. Can I go get my permit? Is there a form I need to fill out? Do I get a certificate or diploma or ice cream cone or SOMETHING for completing this thing?

We know you have a lot of questions. And we’re here to answer them all. Let’s tackle what happens immediately after you complete your Florida Drug and Alcohol/TLSAE course so that you can get your learner’s permit as soon as possible.

Step 1: Aceable Confirms Your Completion Status

As soon as you complete the Drug and Alcohol Course, we let the Florida DMV office know that you’re eligible to get your learner’s license. While we do send that information immediately, it might take a couple of days for the DHSMV to process it. All you really have to do then is sit back, relax and wait for an email from Aceable. We’ll let you know when you can head down to your local driver license office and get that permit! Please note that you won’t get a hard copy of a completion certificate or any diploma. We do recommend, however, that you buy yourself an ice cream cone because ice cream is delicious and you’ve earned it.

Step 2: Test Results Are Sent to the DMV

After you finish the Drug and Alcohol Course, you’re ready to take the Florida Knowledge Exam, also called the Drug and Alcohol Test. When you sign up with Aceable, you can purchase the course and test together and take them both in our app. Easy, right? As soon as you pass the exam (we’re sure you’ll ace it), your results are sent electronically to the Florida DMV office. Those results will be reflected in the system within two days.

Step 3: Time to Pick Up Your Permit!

After the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has received all your completion information, it’s time to go pick up your learner’s permit at your local driver license office. Don’t forget to bring all the documents required to get a permit , like proof of ID and your Parental Consent Form . With that, you’re officially permitted! Have fun driving around with Mom and Dad, and don’t worry if Dad yells at you for not having your hands on the “10 and 2” -- soon enough you’ll be driving on your own.
