The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles is in charge of licensing and titling related matters. Each parish has field offices that you can visit for your licensing and motor vehicle needs. While offices typically are open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. every Monday through Friday, that isn’t always the case. Some are closed for lunch, while others are closed certain days of the week. Because of that, it is important to check with your local field office before going to the OMV.
You can also complete many of your tasks online. That way, you don’t have to worry about when the OMV is open.
Scheduling an Appointment
Some offices take appointments for road tests. If you are going to take a road test, contact your local OMV and ask if you can make an appointment. If you can, you will save time since you won’t have to wait when you arrive. You can go right in and take your test.
Preparing for Your Visit
You can make your visit to the OMV easier by preparing before you arrive. Make sure that you have the right identification before you go to the OMV. In addition, print off the appropriate driver’s license or vehicle registration forms. Fill out the forms and take them with you to your office visit.
