New Orleans Safe Driving School FAQ's

Is New Orleans Safe Driving School a licensed driving school in Louisiana?
Just because a driving school appears on our directory of driver training institutions, we cannot guarantee that they are fully licensed to offer hands-on driving courses in Louisiana.  We highly recommend that you contact New Orleans Safe Driving School directly or the Louisiana DMV to find out for sure if New Orleans Safe Driving School offers driver training courses that have been approved by the State of Louisiana.
I heard that parents can fill the role of driving instructor in Louisiana, so taking a New Orleans behind-the-wheel training course like the one New Orleans Safe Driving School offers is not necessary. Is that true?
You should contact the Louisiana DMV or a licensed driving school like New Orleans Safe Driving School and ask them.  While parent-taught driving instruction is permitted in some states, many states do NOT allow it.
I have no clue how to drive a stick-shift vehicle. What happens if New Orleans Safe Driving School makes me train on a stick-shift vehicle?
Considering the fact you are a brand new driver, you probably don't know much about operating ANY type of vehicle....stick OR automatic!  If you prefer to do your behind-the-wheel training with an automatic-shift vehicle, you may want to call New Orleans Safe Driving School and let them know before you enroll in their behind-the-wheel training course.  That way you'll know for certain whether New Orleans Safe Driving School will be able to accommodate you before you pay them any money.
What happens to those of us who live in a non-urban area? Will New Orleans Safe Driving School include instruction on how to drive on dirt roads, mountain roads, and other bumpy terrain?
If you live in a remote location, there is a high probability that a local driving school like New Orleans Safe Driving School will either want--or even be required--to tailor their instruction towards driving safely in your particular locale.
If I'm 14, can I get an instruction permit to drive in Louisiana?
Possibly.  However, you should be aware that most states require you to be at least 15½ years old before you can get a learner's permit.  We recommend that you contact the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or a certified driving school such as New Orleans Safe Driving School to find out exactly what the minimum age requirement is in Louisiana.
Am I required to take a New Orleans Louisiana classroom or online drivers education course before I can enroll in a behind-the-wheel training course through New Orleans Safe Driving School?
This requirement varies by state but most states do mandate new teen-aged drivers to take BOTH a classroom-based driver education course (generally 30 hours in length) AND a behind-the-wheel training course.  You should ask New Orleans Safe Driving School if they offer one or both programs.
Louisiana law says that I must sign up to take a hands-on driver training course in order to get licensed to drive in New Orleans Louisiana. Is this something that New Orleans Safe Driving School can help me with?
Yes, New Orleans Safe Driving School offers the Louisiana-approved behind-the-wheel training course.  For more information about their classes and instruction schedule, please contact New Orleans Safe Driving School directly.
How do I obtain a drivers license in New Orleans Louisiana?
In most states, pre-licensed teens are required to complete both a classroom drivers education course and a driver training course.  New Orleans Safe Driving School may be able to help you fulfill the behind-the-wheel training portion in Louisiana. 
Do I have to take a New Orleans Louisiana driver training course in order to get a driver's license?
Yes.  All drivers in Louisiana must successfully complete an approved behind-the-wheel training course in order to be licensed to operate a motor vehicle.  Please contact New Orleans Safe Driving School for information on the types of behind-the-wheel training courses they offer in New Orleans Louisiana.
