38 Hour Teen Driving Course - $385

Driver Education for Students 14 years (& 9 months) through 17 years old

We have reopened for in-person classes and are now in Phase 3!  As of today, in-person classes are limited to 18 students for each class, plus the instructor.  We may need to change our policy to be in compliance with the Louisiana Governor proclamation and the guidance that we are provided by the Louisiana OMV. 

We may have to add to or take away guidelines as we proceed through this uncharted water.  Please be patient with us as we work through this together! 

TIP CARD REQUIREMENT:  Prior to attending the first day of any in-person Driver’s Education class, a Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP) must be obtained 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.
