NY DRIVER'S EDUCATION (DRIVER'S ED)

Good driver education (classroom instruction) and driver training (actual behind-the-wheel instruction) are the foundation for the skills and attitudes you will use for the rest of your life.

Driver & Traffic Safety Education in New York State schools is a course implemented via a joint partnership between the New York State Education Department (NYSED), and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The Driver Education course is intended to educate students (age 16 or older) on appropriate driving skills and habits as well as playing a responsible role in the highway transportation/safety system. Please note that additional practice beyond drivers education is highly recommended.

The knowledge, skills, and attitudes you learn in driver education/training classes will help avoid traffic tickets, lower chances of being involved in accidents, and make you a safer driver.

Students who satisfactorily complete the course are eligible to receive the MV-285:

The MV-285 Student Certificate of Completion allows:

  1. a NYS Junior Permit holder to schedule a road test,
  2. young drivers a possible reduction in automobile insurance cost (participation is dependent upon insurance provider participation), and
  3. a 17 year old to receive a senior license (MV-285 form must be submitted to local DMV to attain this benefit).
