BATON ROUGE, La. (KSLA) - The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles has entirely rewritten a policy after a KSLA News 12 investigation revealed the state was misreading its own policy since 2015 - which forced drivers to pay for a service that should be free.

KSLA News 12 learned that OMV’s offices throughout Louisiana were turning away drivers from taking a road test, which is needed before receiving a driver’s license.

As a result, drivers were forced to shell out upwards of $40 to take the exam at a private driving academy.
