Drivers must be this age or older to get license without first having permit
In the latest edition of "Ask Trooper Steve," Anne asked, "My granddaughter is 21 years old and never applied for a driver's license. In the state of Florida, anyone over the age of 18 can go apply for their class E drivers license, Montiero said, which allows anyone over the age of 18 to skip the learners license process all together. Anyone under the age of 18 must hold a learner's permit for one full year prior to getting their regular drivers license, he said. If in that time you turn 18 and have a learner's permit, you are also allowed to simply go in and test for your drivers license, according to Montiero. Basically, Montiero said, if you feel ready and, like Anne's granddaughter, you're over the age of 18, you can simply go get your drivers license.
