Slidell Driving School - Coach's Driving Academy

MOVE INTO PHASE 3: Effective March 31, 2021: In-person classes are still limited as of today and we are at 75% capacity, which allows a few more students to attend each class. The new orders from Governor Edwards does not change our class capacity.

We are not accepting names for any waiting list or "pre-registering" for the 38 Hour Teen Driving Course.

 With current Louisiana guidelines, we are still limited in the number of students that we can have in each class.

 Yes, we are just as frustrated as you are, but we must adhere to the current guidelines set forth by the Governor’s Office and the Louisiana OMV 😊

 Please be patient as we are holding as many classes as we reasonably can and still fulfill our requirements of holding other types of classes, completing Instructional drives, and performing Road Skills Tests assessments for both Teens and Adults.

 Please keep checking back for future class dates being released.

Our registration is done on a first come, first served basis. 

NOTE: If at any time we need to move back to tighter class restrictions based on either the Louisiana Governor proclamation or by directive of the Louisiana OMV, we may need to reduce the number of students in our class at any given time.  We will try and minimize the impact this may have on you taking a class with us. 

All students and instructors must wear a mask/face-covering while taking the course and during the driving instruction. To view available class dates & times that are open, visit our links under the "Driving Classes" Tab. 

TIP CARD REQUIREMENT:  Prior to attending the first day of any in-person Driver’s Education class, your teen must obtain the Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP card)  from the Office of Motor Vehicles.  A TIP must be obtained before students attend Day 1 of the class. This rule applies to anyone in the State of Louisiana (regardless of age) that wishes to obtain a Drivers License, both Teens and Adults. 

 Visit our TIP CARD INFORMATION page for more details.
