Beginner Driving Lessons

Practice makes perfect, and safety isn’t an option

Before you can start driving, you must get your NY learners permit. Complete a  MV-44 form. You must bring this form to your local DMV office, along with proofs of identity and date of birth. You will have to take a vision test and written permit test. To pass the written test, you must get at least 14 of the 20 multiple-choice questions correct. 

Most beginner drivers fail their road tests due to not being adequately prepared. The DMV recommends that all new drivers have 50 supervised driving practice hours. You must also have at least 15 hours of night driving. The DMV recommends taking courses from a professional driving school.  It is also recommended to have supervised practice driving in moderate to heavy traffic conditions.

You are required to take the 5 hour pre-licensing course before you are able to schedule or take a road test.

If you have a package with us, we will schedule your road test appointment. If you pass your road test, the license examiner normally gives you an interim driver license that is valid for 90 days. Keep the interim driver license with your learner permit as proof that you have a driver’s license.
