Have you ever wondered what you're supposed to do when you're stopped by a police officer? Do you need to know if it's legal for your younger brother to tie a string to your bumper so you can pull him around on his skateboard?
You'll find answers to these and many other questions inside the Louisiana Class D & E Drivers Guide, which is available at your local Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV). You can also view the manuals online in PDF format with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. The commercial manual is also available online.
The Louisiana Class D & E Drivers Guide could almost be called a one-stop shop for all your driver licensing questions. New drivers can use it as a tool to study for licensing exams. Experienced drivers can keep one handy to refresh their memories of traffic rules, regulations, and proper procedures.
The first part of the guide explains everything you need to know about driver licenses including getting, keeping, and losing them. It also covers the registration and titling of vehicles.
The rest of the guide covers everything you need to know before you apply for your driver's license, including laws, offenses, and safety.
Remember, Louisiana also offers handbooks and manuals for commercial drivers and motorcyclists. Be sure to check out our Commercial Driver Education and Motorcycle Manual sections for more information.Other Topics in This Section
