Adult Program

*** As of September 4, 2018 the state requires ALL students to obtain a Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP), from the Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV). Students need the TIP card to take the class exam, and participate in the behind the wheel portion of the course.

Be sure to bring the following items to the OMV to receive your TIP card:

Proof of identification

Proof of residency

Verification of your Social Security Number

Acceptable verification includes your Social Security card, W2 form, or a print out from the Social Security Administration verifying the number. If you do not have a Social Security Number, a letter from the Social Security Administration must be presented. The number may also be given verbally.

You must also present one additional form of identification such as a photo work ID, high school diploma, insurance card, etc.

Please note: $100 non-refundable fee required for registration. (48 hr. in advance cancellation is eligible for a $60 refund)

Louisiana Law require anyone 18 years of age or older who desires a driver's license to take a "14 Hour Pre-licensing Course", which includes 6 hours of in-class training and 8 hours behind the wheel training. NOTE: Anyone 15-17 years of age wanting to acquire their license must take 30 hours of class and 8 hours of behind the wheel training.

Behind the Wheel Training

This is a critical part of the student's training. As it should be with any training, we drive immediately after the class training with minimal delays. We exclusively use safety-proven vehicles with dual-controls, anti-lock brakes and front and side air bags.

Individualized Driving Instruction: We progress at your teen's rate, without any other teens to distract or embarrass them.

Qualified, Trained Instructors: Our instructors get more than TWICE the training required, and they are continually retrained.

Vehicle Awareness: We teach that the driver is the pilot of the vehicle and it is the driver's responsibility to know their vehicle. A safe driver knows their vehicle and knows what to do to keep from damaging the vehicle (i.e. the significance of the oil light or the alternator light.)

Intersection Awareness Skills: It's not the stop sign or traffic light that causes a crash. Most accidents occur at intersections and we will train the student in skills to avoid crashes.

Space Cushion Management: Controlling space around your vehicle takes a pro-active driver and discipline. These skills DO NOT happen naturally.

Detailed Evaluation: Insights from your teen's instructor as to where they need more attention, practice or more training. Again, we don't leave you out there without giving you a "heads-up" as to where your new driver may put themselves in danger.

(8) Planned Driving Hours, minimum, of Individual Driving Instruction. The training is done by appointment; each appointment includes two hours of one-on-one driver training.

Just wanted to give a "shout out" to the Franklinton Driving Academy! I took the driving course at age 18 with very little driving experience, pretty much scared of the open road. The staff at FDA was so patient with me and taught me so much in such a short period of time. Not only were they patient with me but they worked around my schedule so I didn't have to miss work. I am now a very confident driver and I owe it all to Franklinton Driving Academy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thanks again!

I can not say enough about how incredible FDA is....from their staff, to their ability to work around the schedules of active teenagers...FDA is the best around. My daughter took drivers education from them last summer and loved the staff and education she received from FDA. The staff (Johnathan and Phil) made learning FUN...even on early summer mornings. During the week course, my daughter learned so much about road safety and what to do in situations that only life can teach you. Thank you FDA for an awesome, fun, exciting, experience learning to drive!! -

Franklinton Driving Academy prepared Katherine for her driving test and made it lots of fun. I feel that she was well prepared for her written test and seems to have learned so much in her one week of class time. They made learning fun by using technology and kept the students engaged . She also got lots of good driving experience in a variety of environments. She feels comfortable driving on the interstate and in areas with more traffic. I feel confident that Katherine is prepared to get her drivers license in May and I am so glad that we sent her to Franklinton Driving Academy!
