Frequently Asked Questions

How old do I have to be to take my learners permit exam?
The Louisiana office of Motor Vehicles requires you to be 15 years of age before applying for a Louisiana learners permit.  If you are 17 or older, you do not have to apply for a learners permit at all, and can simply fulfill Louisiana drivers license requirements to take the Louisiana drivers license exam.
Will online drivers education through Driver Ed To Go satisfy Louisiana OMV requirements?
In Louisiana, everyone must complete a 38-hour drivers education class.  While some states allow online driver education to substitute for in-room courses, in Louisiana Driver Ed To Go can be taken as a supplementary educational tool only.  However, our course will prepare you for your learners permit exam long before you sign up for driving school, and put you on your way to successfully fulfilling your Louisiana drivers ed requirements.

 

What paperwork do I need before I can learn to drive a car?

When you arrive at a local Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles ("OMV") office to take your learners permit exam, bring with you a birth certificate and two secondary forms of identification, such as a social security card, high school ID, or other photo identification.  If you are under 18, you will also need your parents to come with you before taking the drivers license exam.

What if I don’t pass the Louisiana learners permit test? How many times can I take the test?
The Louisiana OMV requires that you pass a written exam, a road sign identification exam and a road test before being issued your Louisiana learners permit.  If you don't pass the exam, you can retake it until you succeed, but you can only take the tests once per day.

Driver Ed To Go's Louisiana online driver education courses will prepare you for these exams and your remaining driver education, through easy-to-follow web instruction, quizzes and other learning aids, and a comprehensive final exam.  With Driver Ed To Go, you can expect to take your learners permit exams once and succeed with ease.
How many questions are on the final exam at the end of the Driver Ed To Go course?
Driver Ed To Go requires you to pass a comprehensive final exam to complete your Louisiana online drivers education course.  The exam is 35 questions and, just like Louisiana OMV exams, you will need 80% to pass.  If you don't success at first, you can retake the exam at your own pace until you pass, free of charge.
How long until I receive my Driver Ed To Go Louisiana online drivers education certificate of completion?
Your certificate of completion from Drivers Ed To Go normally arrives in three to five business days.  For expedited 3rd day, 2nd day, or overnight delivery, you can choose to have FedEx deliver your certificate for an added fee.
When can I start driving with my Louisiana learners permit?

You can begin driving once you have received your Louisiana learners permit.  The Louisiana OMV requires you to be accompanied by a licensed driver of at least 21 years of age, or a sibling at least 18 years of age, until you receive your unrestricted drivers license.

How long do I need to have my Louisiana learners permit before I can get my unrestricted drivers license?
In Louisiana, you must be at least 16 to apply for a drivers license.  You must also have held your learners permit for six months, and either completed one of the Louisiana OMV-approved 38-hour driving school courses, or be 17 years of age and completed a smaller, Louisiana OMV-approved six-hour course.
Can my friends ride with me after I get my permit? Can I drive alone?

When you finally get the chance to drive with your Louisiana learners permit, we understand the excitement and desire to drive around, be it alone or with your friends.  Driving is a new and exciting experience and, if done safely, is sure to be a fun part of your life.

The Louisiana OMV will allow you to carry other passengers while driving with your learners permit.  However, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver of at least 21 years of age or a brother or sister at least 18 years of age.  Without that supervised adult in your passenger seat, you are breaking the law and in danger of having your Louisiana driving privileges taken away before you even had a chance to enjoy them.  Be smart and make sure you have a supervised licensed Louisiana driver with you whenever driving on your learners permit.

Can my friends ride with me after I get my Louisiana drivers license? What is an intermediate license?
Once you have completed your learners permit requirements and turned 16 years old, you can obtain an intermediate drivers license.  With this license, you can drive alone or with friends, so long as you do so safely during the hours of 5am and 11pm.  If you wish to drive alone or with friends after that time, you must have a licensed Louisiana driver with you who is at least 21 years or older.

When you turn 17, these time restrictions will be lifted, and you drive free and clear with your unrestricted Louisiana drivers license!
