Our goal has always been to assist our students to obtain a driver’s license.
Road Test Overview
A road test can be a challenging event. We try to make it less stressful by scheduling the road test for our students and if desired accompanying them on the day of the test.
Our success rate has been high, and the students are always proud of their driving accomplishments.
Who Must Take it
- Anyone looking to obtain a NYS Driver’s License.
- Be able to drive anywhere without the dependence of family or friends.

Most new drivers who fail their road test were not adequately prepared. Professional driving instruction is recommended as well as a meticulous review of the Drivers Manual. If you are under the age of 18 and have a Class DJ or Class MJ permit, make sure you read about supervised practice driving hours required by law that must be certified by your parent or guardian.
The Department of Motor Vehicles Recommendations for All Learners
Minimum hours recommended of supervised practice driving before you take your road test.
Minimum hours recommended of supervised practice driving at night (after sunset) before you take your road test.
Minimum hours recommended of supervised practice driving in moderate to heavy traffic before you take your road test.
