What do you need before you can schedule any driving lessons?

You need to have a valid New York State learners Permit.

What do I need to have with me when I call to schedule my road test?

You will need to have your five hour certificate (MV-278) or Certificate of Completion from Driver Education (MV-285) in hand.

What do I need to bring to the road test?

If you are under the age of 18:

  • 1. Your Five Hour Course Certificate (MV-278 original only) or MV-285 (Certificate of Completion from Driver Education – original only). Be sure to detach the bottom quarter of the MV-285 and retain for your insurance company.

  • 2. Your Picture Permit (not Temporary)

  • 3. Your MV-262 – 50 hours of Certified Driving

If you are over 18:

  • 1. Your Five Hour Course Certificate (MV-278 original only)

  • 2. Your Picture Permit (not Temporary)

Do I get a second chance to take the road test?

Absolutely. In fact you are eligible to take the test several times if needed. Re-tests cannot be taken the same day. When you received your Class D, DJ, E, M or MJ permit, the fee that you paid included 2 road tests. If you were unsuccessful in passing the road test in 2 attempts, you will need to pay an additional $10 to Department of Motor Vehicles for 2 more attempts before you can schedule a road test.

If you decide to use our services for your next attempts, we will charge you a discounted price of $75 to take you to and from the road test site.

How long is my 5 Hour Certificate valid for?

One year and if it expires, you must re-take the class.
