Our Program

The State of Louisiana requires a 38 Hour Course for students 15, 16 and 17 years of age before they can obtain a driver’s permit.

Students must complete 30 hours of classroom instruction and 8 hours of behind the wheel training. The behind the wheel training is scheduled once the 30 hour classroom instruction has been completed.

If you are 18 or older you must complete a minimum of 6 hours of classroom instruction and 8 hours of behind the wheel training.  The behind the wheel training is scheduled once the 6 hour classroom instruction has been completed.

At All Star Driving Academy we recommend that students 18, 19 or 20 years of age take full advantage of our 38 Hour Course so that you can get the experience that you need to be a safe driver.

We enhance our course with videos that compliment many segments of our course. These videos show real life situations and how they can affect your everyday life.

We provide work sheets that will be used as study guides.

After completing the course, students will be tested and a score of 80% is required to pass.

Once the student has passed we will schedule them to drive.

To make it fair for everyone, and to boost the performance level of our class, we schedule driving time by the highest grade. Whoever has the highest score drives first.

 

 Each student will drive 4 sessions for 2 hours per session.
