If you are a new driver, you must complete a state-mandated 5-hour pre-licensing class after you receive your New York State Learner’s permit. Once you complete this mandatory course, you will be provided with a valid form MV-278 certificate which will enable you to schedule your DMV road test… (and get your drivers license)!

Learning to drive is an essential part of gaining (or retaining) independence in life. We recognize how important learning how to drive is to our students, and our goal is for each student to enjoy the process of learning how to drive as much as the end result. Our patient instructors have been specially selected and trained to teach you accident avoidance techniques as well as how to pass the NY State road test.
