Finding Alien and Non-Alien Numbers


If you have never held a regular driver license in any state or county within the United States, you must complete the Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course prior to applying for a temporary restricted driver's permit in the state of Florida. The TLSAE Course (Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education) is a Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles State approved 4 hour program that all Florida residents must complete if you are a first time driver. By completing the TLSAE course, you are taking the 1st step on your way to obtaining a driver's permit!

During the registration process the state requires you to enter an Alien Number, Non Alien Number, or last 4 digits of Social Security Number (SSN). Most Alien Numbers are listed as the registration number on the front your Visa. However, if your Visa does not have a registration number there will be a Passport Number listed instead, and this would be the number you would want to enter in the Non Alien Number field. The registration number is generally either 8 or 9 digits in length and an example of the most common format would be 000-001-002. If you are utilizing your passport number it would be in the format of AB123456.

Alien numbers can also be referred to as:
  • Alien registration numbers
  • USCIS numbers
  • or A-numbers.
By completing this information during your registration, you will be validating your identity with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) and on your way to receive a restricted driver's license.
