Students signing up for the 14 hour class or the 38 hour class must get a Temporary Instructional Permit (TIP) from the DMV prior to registration. Bring the following items to DMV:
14-17 years - Original Birth Certificate, SS Card, School Enrollment Form, Custody Papers (if applicable) - Student must be brought to DMV by legal domiciliary parent/guardian.
18 years and older - Original Birth Certificate, SS Card, Proof of Residence (Electric bill, etc.)
Bring your TIP and Birth Certificate with you to register for class.
Deposits and payments are non refundable. Students may transfer deposit to another class date if they are unable to attend the original class as long as it is not within 24 hours of original class starting. Please call as soon as possible if you or your child will not be able to attend any class. Cancellations within 24 hours of class beginning will result in loss of deposit.
Blue Line Driving Academy does not issue "classroom only" certificates, with the exception being for the reason of physical handicap needs. Please keep this in mind when registering, as we do not accommodate our students driving at different locations. If you wish to take the classroom portion and the driving portion at different schools, then Blue Line is not the place for you. Certificates will only be issued after the classroom and driving portions of the course are completed.
If any necessary absence occurs during the classroom portion of instruction contact the office to work out when the class time can be made up. If a student misses any classroom portion the class must be made up at an additional fee of $60 per day. No certificate will be awarded until the course requirements are met.
Classes or Driving sessions can be cancelled in the event of extreme inclement weather (i.e. hurricane, tornado, etc…) which puts our students in danger. Blue Line Driving Academy staff will contact the students regarding rescheduling.
You will find that Blue Line Driving Academy will strive to settle any issues. Any grievance(s) not resolved by the school may be forwarded to the Department of Public Safety Corrections, Office of Motor Vehicles, Attention: CDL and Commercial Driving Schools Unit, P.O. Box 64886, Baton Rouge, LA 70896.
Students are expected to arrive on time and maintain a courteous and respectful attitude. Cheating will not be tolerated. Any student caught cheating will be asked to leave. Cell phones are not permitted to be used during class room or driving time unless directed. Any cell phone usage during this time will result in student’s removal from the class without a refund. Parents, please discuss this with your child before class attendance to avoid issues.
Students with hearing, speech, or learning disabilities should notify Blue Line Driving Academy prior to enrolling.
Completion of any course at Blue Line Driving Academy does not guarantee that a driver’s license will be awarded to a student nor will this course count for any school credit. Students may qualify for a discount on auto insurance premiums; contact your agent for details.
