This State Instructor 3 Day course is from 9am-5pm DO NOT SHOW UP LATE and is for a BLUE CARD for state instructors that are first time applicants, a person who had a temp Gray Card (from DPAS course) but it will expire after 6 months or a person who was previously certified but have allowed their 5 year certification to lapse. You DO NOT NEED to do the DPAS course before attending this class. The Blue Card trumps the Gray Card as far as importance goes.
If you have been certified in another state, you may not have to take this course. The Division of Driver Licenses in Tallahassee will make the determination if you have to take this course, the 8- hour course, or if they will accept your out-of-state certification.
