Louisiana's Temporary Instruction Permit Rules

What you need to know

On September 4th 2018 the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles implemented a Temporary Instruction Permit requirement. The new law states that before an applicant can attend a driving school they must first obtain a license. This implementation was put in place to cut down on the amount of students taking driver's education courses that were ineligible for a Louisiana Drivers License. This has created some congestion at the DMV's , however like anything there is a learning curve. It appears that the DMV has it figured out as of late.
