The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) will begin implementing the Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP) effective September 4, 2018.
What this means is that ANY student wanting to enroll in a driver's education course on or after September 4, 2018, MUST go to a DMV and get a TIP before attending the driver's education class. The student must be at least 14 years 9 months to be issued a TIP. Adults are also mandated to obtain a TIP before attending class.
Even though you have already enrolled in a driving class with me, you will still need to go to the DMV on or after September 4, 2018. The DMV will issue you a TIP which must be presented to us on the day of registration.
The cost of the TIP from the DMV is $32.25 with a possible service fee up to $6.00. Upon successful completion of the driver's education course, the student will return to the DMV to convert the TIP to a Learner's Permit or Full License. There is NO additional cost to convert from the TIP to the permit or license.
