Third Party Administrator Program

The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) uses a web-based application for the administration of Class E Knowledge and Driving Skills Exams called the Automated Driver License Testing System (ADLTS). The vendor for the ADLTS system is Solutions Thru Software. This contractual partnership has allowed DHSMV to provide alternative testing solutions that not only provide the citizens of Florida outstanding services, but encourages the growth of private businesses.

ADLTS is used by Florida driver license offices and tax collector offices offering driver license services, as well as third party administrators who are contracted with DHSMV to provide Class E exam services. The ADLTS system produces a timed, 60 minute, 50-question test which is created within the system by randomly selecting questions from the ADLTS question bank consisting of approximately 800 different questions. The exam is administered to the student via computer. ADLTS stores and scores the test and provides results directly to DHSMV.

Third party administrators can also administer the Class E Driving Skills Exam. The exam is given to the student by a test examiner who administers the test via a computer tablet. This tablet is required to be used by all third parties who wish to conduct the Class E Driving Skills Exam via the ADLTS. The tablet automatically scores the exam upon completion and provides results directly to DHSMV.

ADLTS provides real-time test results and eliminates the need for individual scoring of paper tests. ADLTS also reduces the chances of fraudulent activity within the testing environment, thus improving the integrity of the exam.
