Getting behind the wheel of our first car and taking off to visit a friend out of town, or cruise up and down the street with our friends and family, music playing, wind blowing and sunglasses on looking cool! The stuff our teenage and young adult dreams are made of but before these dreams can be realized we have to go through what every other driver on the road has to do and this includes the license application for Louisiana State, the knowledge test and the road test.

In Louisiana, the OMV or office of motor vehicles otherwise known as the DMV in other states requires that we test in a couple different areas and pass with a 80% passing rate which means getting at least 32 questions out of 40 on the knowledge test correct.

You can try as often as you want to read the manual over and over and apply for your license, pay for the test only to fail and have to retake it possible several times.
