14 Hour Pre-Licensing course includes 6 hours of classroom instruction and 8 hours of behind-the-wheel driving training. Behind-the-wheel driving instruction is scheduled in 2-3 hour increments over 3-4 days after classroom instruction is complete.
You must provide your Temporary Instructional Permit the day of the class.
The 6 hours of classroom instruction includes the final exam which is the Standardized Knowledge Test provided to Bee Safe from the OMV. A score of 80% is required to successfully complete the course and obtain their Driver’s License. The Louisiana Driver's Manual is available online. Click here for free Louisiana (LA) OMV Practice Tests.
If students do not pass the test the first time, they may retake the test one time on that day. If they do not score at least 80% on the first retest they will be asked to schedule retesting on another day for a fee of $10. Students may take the test twice each day until they have successfully passed.
Behind-the-wheel driving sessions will be scheduled prior to the end of classroom instruction. Students will have an opportunity to adjust the schedule as needed. Once the schedule is confirmed, we require a 48-hour notice for adjustments to the schedule. A $25 cancellation fee is assessed when a student fails to give 48-hour notice and miss their time.
The total cost of the 14 Hour Pre-Licensing Course is $425 (this includes the Road Test). A $225.00 non-refundable deposit, Temporary Instructional Permit and completion of the Registration Form is required to ensure your placement in the class. The remaining $200.00 balance is due the day of class.
The final Road Skills Test will be scheduled after completion of the classroom and behind-the-wheel training.
If you do not show up for class, there will be a $50 fee to transfer to another class.
