The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) will implement the temporary instructional permit (TIP) effective Tuesday, September 4, 2018. All students enrolled in driver education on or after next Tuesday must present a TIP to the enrolled driver education provider (if the student is enrolled in driver education prior to September 4 they will not be required to present a TIP to the enrolled driver education provider).

The cost of the temporary instructional permit will be the cost of a regular license, however, no additional fee will be assessed when the student completes driver’s education and returns to the office to obtain a learner’s permit.

Upon successful completion of driver’s education, the TIP must be surrendered to OMV along with proof of successful completion of the appropriate driver’s education course and any other necessary documents.
