Class E Knowledge Test Details
All drivers in Florida are required to pass this Class E Knowledge Test to get a learner’s license. The Class E Knowledge Exam is commonly known as the “written test”, even though it is taken on a computer now.
The Class E Knowledge Exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions about Florida traffic laws, safe driving practices and identifying traffic controls. To pass, you must answer 40 out of 50 questions correctly, or score 80 percent. To prepare for the Class E Knowledge Exam, study the Official Florida Driver License Handbook. At the end of the handbook there are some practice questions that will help to pass the test successfully.

What To Do After Passing the Class E Knowledge Test
Once a person passes the Class E Knowledge Exam, Cantor’s Driving School, as an authorized third party administrator, will automatically upload the exam results to the FLHSMV. This information is then available at all driver’s license offices and tax collector’s offices throughout the State of Florida. We will also provide a certificate or proof of passing the exam to bring to the FLHSMV or any tax collector’s office. An appointment then has to be made at the FLHSMV or tax collector’s office in order to obtain a Florida learner’s license. New drivers must pass both the Class E Knowledge Exam and the mandatory Florida Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE) course (also available from via Cantor’s Driving School) to get a learner’s license.
Note: Section 322.56(3)(b) and (e) of Florida Statutes provides that someone who passes the Class E Knowledge Exam or Driving Skills Test through an authorized third party administrator may be randomly selected for a no fee mandatory re-test without prior notice. After a re-test with a passing score is completed in a driver’s license or tax collector’s office, the license will be issued. A failed mandatory re-test will require a re-exam fee be collected at the next exam attempt.
