The Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP) Card

UPDATE: July 4, 2022

As of September 4, 2018, the Louisiana DMV has required all students to obtain a TIP (Temporary Instruction Permit) from the DMV. Bass Driving School, LLC requires that each teen student obtain his/her TIP Card at least one month  PRIOR to their first day of the driver’s education course. Adult students must obtain their TIP Card at least 2 weeks prior to the first day of class. Students arriving at the driver’s education course without first obtaining a TIP from the DMV will not be permitted to attend the driver’s education course. Please take a picture of the TIP Card and email it to us. We do not offer refunds.  Please do not put off getting the TIP Card.
