How to Get Ready
New York State Department of Motor Vehicles suggest in order for you to prepare yourself for Road Test and after for responsible and independent safe driving, with experience to be ready for any extreme driving situations next:
Safe drivers, confident in today’s traffic situations, often find the amount of practice driving before the road test had made a positive difference when they took the road test. Before you take the test, it is very important that you have at least 50 hours of driving practice, with at least 15 hours after sunset.
Safe Driving Course Requirement.
Before you can make a road test appointment, you must first complete an approved pre-licensing safe driving course. This requirement is automatically fulfilled as part of every high school or college driver education course. All other drivers must complete this requirement by taking a special five-hour course available at most professional driving schools licensed by State of New York.
