Individual who have attended a Florida Department of Education- approved drivers license education course or who have a valid license in another state are not required to complete the course.

The D.A.T.E. Course is offered by the DUI programs under the regulation of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. This four hour curriculum focuses on traffic safety, Florida laws and on critical substance abuse information.
