Teen and Adult Driving School in Watson, LA

Learning to drive is a huge milestone in your child's life. But for parents, this rite of passage can be a nerve-wracking experience. That's where we come in. At LIVINGSTON DRIVING, we have been providing  safe driving instruction for teens throughout Watson, Denham Springs, Walker, Central and Livingston,and beyond for more than 24 years. Whether you're preparing your teen for their Learners Permit, License or  DMV test or looking for a defensive driving course, we have you covered. Before your teen hits the road, they need a strong foundation of safe driving skills and supervised driving experience. That's why, at LIVINGSTON DRIVING, we offer a variety of specialized driver's education courses designed with the needs of young drivers in mind. If you're looking for comprehensive driver's ed classes from skilled instructors, you've come to the right place.  

  While our goal is to help young people stay safe on the road, ongoing practice is necessary to achieve this. Once students have completed our course, parents are responsible for riding alongside them for a minimum of 50 hours total, 15 of which must be at night.
