First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) FAQ's

Are all the driving schools listed on your website fully-accredited by the Louisiana DMV to offer behind-the-wheel training courses in Louisiana?
The driving school directory on our website is for your convenience only, and we cannot absolutely guarantee that every driving school listed is currently certified to offer driving training courses in Louisiana.  We suggest you contact the Louisiana DMV to make sure a particular driving school is accredited before you enroll in their driver training course.
I've been told that either of my parents can supervise my driver training, so I don't have to attend a Lafayette Louisiana driving school like First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) to fulfill my driver training requirement. Do you know if that's true or not?
You will need to contact the Louisiana DMV or a state-approved driver training school like First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) to find out.  Some states do allow parent-taught driving, but many states do not.
I have no clue how to drive a manual-shift vehicle. What happens if First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) makes me train on a manual-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....manual OR automatic!  If you prefer to do your behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) and let them know before you enroll in their driver training course.  That way you'll know for certain whether First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) can accommodate you before you pay them any money.
I live in a small mountain town, where there are a lot of small, unpaved roads. Will my behind-the-wheel training with First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) include being taught how to drive in rural areas? Or do they just offer training for city driving?
Most local driving schools will likely want their students to know how to drive safely in the local area.  Therefore, chances are good that the behind-the-wheel training you receive from First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) will include handling dirt roads and mountain driving.
After I turn 14, will I be eligible to obtain my learner's permit so I can begin to learn how to drive?
It depends on which state you live in, however most states unfortunately require you to be at least 15 (or sometimes 15 1/2) before you can be issued a learner's permit.  We suggest that you contact a local driver training school such as First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) or the Louisiana DMV office to learn more about the minimum age requirement for driving in Louisiana.
Can I take First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools)'s behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Lafayette Louisiana drivers education classroom course or online course?
It depends on what Louisiana's laws say.  However, you should know that most states will require teen-aged, first-time drivers to complete both a drivers education classroom course (which are approximately 30 hours in length, depending on Louisiana's laws) or an approved online course, plus a state-approved behind-the-wheel training course.  We recommend that you contact First Choice Driving School (Lafayette Parish Public Schools) directly to see if they offer either (or both) of these courses.
