Read the Louisiana Driver’s Guide
OMV recommends you to read through the guide at least three times. They also tell you to focus on memorizing any numeric information in the
guide like lengths, distances, measurements, etc.
We think it is better to focus on true understanding of traffic signs and signals, pavement markings, right-of-way rules, and safe driving practices. Such knowledge will help more on the test and when you finally get your license.

Who Must Take the LA Knowledge Test?
All first-time applicants must pass the Louisiana knowledge test.
Applicants with an out-of-state license don’t have to take the test, unless they let their license expire for one year or more.
If you have an out-of-country license you must successfully pass the knowledge and skills tests, before you can get a Louisiana license. If you have a license issued in Germany or Switzerland you don’t have to take the tests.
How Many Questions are on the Test?
The Louisiana test has several questions about road signs and traffic signals. You must be able to identify certain signs by shape, color and/or symbol.
There are also questions about your responsibility as a driver, including knowledge of Louisiana vehicle laws and safe driving practices.
The written knowledge test has 40 questions. You must reach a score of at least 80% to pass. This means that you can only miss 8 questions.
If you fail the test, you can take the test again the same day. You are, however, placed back in rotation to await your turn. You can only re-test once per day.
Any attempt at cheating results in your test being discontinued and you must wait a minimum of 30 days before you can try again.
If needed, you may ask for an oral test. Call your office ahead.
