Do I have to be a Florida resident to take this course?
No. This course can be taken by anyone. However, you should consult the Florida Driver License office about their specific requirements.

You must complete all phases of the course in order to receive a Certificate of Completion. The course time frame is a minimum of 90 minutes, just like in the classroom course.

I am done with the material, however, the chapter timer still has time left. What should I do?
