The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) will implement the Temporary Instructional Permit (TIP) effective 09/04/2018
A TIP is a class “E” credential that will indicate “Temporary Instruction Permit” in the header. All students enrolled in a driver education or pre-licensing course on or after the effective date must present a TIP. In addition, the student must have the TIP in their possession when operating a motor vehicle during the behind the wheel portion of instruction and when accompanied by a licensed driver education instructor or during the administration of a road skills test.
Upon completion of driver’s education, the TIP will be surrendered to OMV along with proof of completion of the appropriate driver’s education course and any other necessary documents. There is no additional cost to convert from the TIP to a Learner’s Permit for a minor.
Additional information is found in Act 317 of the 2016 regular legislative session.
ALL ADULTS 18 AND OVER WILL BE REQUIRED TO APPLY FOR A TIP BEFORE TAKING DRIVERS EDUCATION.
