Acadiana Safety Association FAQ's

Acadiana Safety Association is listed on your website as a driving school which offers behind-the-wheel training courses. How do I know if Acadiana Safety Association is a certified school in Louisiana?
While we include a list of driving schools on our website for your convenience, we cannot guarantee that every single one of them is currently licensed by the Louisiana DMV.  We suggest you contact Acadiana Safety Association directly or the Louisiana DMV to find out if Acadiana Safety Association is a fully-accredited driving school.
Is it true that my mom or dad can be my driving instructor when I do my driver training instead of a professional driver training school instructor like the ones they have at Acadiana Safety Association?
It depends on what your state's laws are.  You should contact the Louisiana DMV or a licensed driving school like Acadiana Safety Association to find out if Louisiana allows behind-the-wheel training with a parent.
What happens if I don't know how to drive a manual-shift vehicle? Will Acadiana Safety Association allow me to do my driver training with an automatic-shift automobile?
Considering you're a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about driving any type of automobile--manual-shift or automatic-shift!  However, if you prefer to complete your driver training using an automatic-shift vehicle, you should contact Acadiana Safety Association and inform them before you register for their driver training course.  That way you will know for certain if they will accommodate you.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads everywhere. Will Acadiana Safety Association train me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?
If you live in a rural or mountain community, chances are that a local driving school like Acadiana Safety Association will include driving lessons specifically tailored to that terrain. 
I just turned 14 years old. Am I eligible to receive my instruction permit in Louisiana?
Probably not.  The minimum age requirement for holding a learners permit in most states is 15 1/2.  You should contact the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a licensed driving school such as Acadiana Safety Association to find out more information about the minimum age requirement in Louisiana. 
Do I have to complete a Lafayette Louisiana drivers education classroom course or online course before registering for one of Acadiana Safety Association's behind-the-wheel training courses?
Each state has its own laws, but most states will require first-time drivers to take both a behind-the-wheel training course plus either a defensive driving classroom course (which are about 30 hours in length) or an approved online defensive driving course.  You may want to ask Acadiana Safety Association if they offer one or both programs.
