Louisiana Motor Vehicle Statutes

There may come a time when knowing Louisiana's driving-related rules and regulations, or at least being able to look them up, will come in handy.

The Louisiana Class D & E Drivers Guide is a great place to learn the rules of the road, but even it doesn't cover the specifics of everything. That's when it's time to turn to the Louisiana State Legislature for more help.

Title 32: Motor Vehicles and Traffic Regulation

Title 32 has more than 100 statutes pertaining to motor vehicles, driver licenses, traffic regulations, and much more.

To save you from spending hours looking for the statute you need, DMV.ORG has dug through the statutes and divided them into 10 basic categories based on the content contained in each section. Each category will list only a few of the statutes included for quick reference.

To find the complete list of statutes, visit the Title 32: Motor Vehicles and Traffic Regulation Web page provided by the Louisiana State Legislature.

Check Your Driver's License Status

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver's license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver's license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what's on record at the OMV. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.

More Information

If you can't find what you're looking for in the statutes, refer to Louisiana's Policies and Procedures, which cover information about licenses, motor vehicles, and safety. Or, you may contact your Louisiana Legislators for additional assistance.
