The State of Florida requires a total of 40-hours of instruction for Class "D" license training. At ISI, we offer the 40-hours of Class "D" training over a 5-day period in the classroom. The program runs Friday through Thursday every week and includes all information required by the State of Florida for initial license applicants.
In addition to lesson instruction, every student is walked through the State application process in a step-by-step manner to ensure that the license application is complete and filled out properly. Students passing the final exam will be given proof of completion to provide to the State when they apply for the Class "D" license. To assist in the application process students may purchase the support services required by the State in order to have a complete application. Please see details below.
