SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Parents of students enrolled in a driver's training school in Shreveport say they are being fooled out of their money by a company that Louisiana officials accuse of operating without a license.
Customers say 5 Star Driving School is taking their money but, after the class, the students can't get their license.
What's more, doors at the school located at 1409 E 70th St. have been locked and closed for the past couple of days. Yet, one parent says the school was still signing up students just a week ago, even after the school lost its accreditation.
"You trust that when people say this is what we offer, you take them at their word. And I guess maybe you shouldn't but most people do. Most people don't second guess things like that," says Jamie Eastridge, the mother of one 5 Star class.
Eastridge says she sent her 17-year-old son, Kevin, to 5 Star and was ready to sign her daughter up for classes, too.
"I had no problem until we tried to get [Kevin's] license," she says. That's when the state's Department of Motor Vehicles told her that the school had lost its accreditation months ago, and that Kevin might be out of luck.
Says Kevin: "I got ticked off cause I thought I wasn't going to be able to get my license, and we just got ripped out of $500."
Kevin eventually got his license -- after spending hours at the DMV to straighten things out. This was because he could prove his course was taken before the school lost its accreditation.
The commissioner of motor vehicles in Louisiana, Stephen F. Campbell, says 5 Star has been under investigation for months. The school lost its accreditation, he says, because it failed to meet Louisiana requirements, including not having a licensed driving instructor on staff.
5 Star is no longer listed among licensed driving schools on Louisiana's DMV website.
5 Star did not respond to KSLA's repeated efforts for comment.
