Louisiana is a state with varied landscapes from swamps to forests to freeways, and navigating them all requires a driver’s license, and getting one starts right here with using this Louisiana Driver’s Handbook to get your driver’s permit. This page’s navigation controls will allow you to read the whole book, and then review sections at your leisure. We pull only the most current edition from the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles, so you only study relevant laws and rules. When you feel ready, you can apply what you’ve learned to start taking our free Louisiana permit practice tests. Once you’ve mastered both the Louisiana Driver’s Handbook and the practice tests, it’s time to schedule your exam and get a driver’s permit of your own!
