How to Get your Learner Permit

Below are guidelines for getting your learners permit in Florida, California, and New York - more states to come.

Depending on where you live your first drivers license will be called something differnet. In Florida and New York your first license is a learner permit. In California it is called a provisional permit.

Regardless of where you live your Learner Permit/Provisional Permit means that you cannot drive alone. Belive it or not some people are confused about this. We typically get calls from them after they have been caught driving solo and received a ticket.
