Once you have obtained your NYS Learner's Permit you may drive with someone who already has a NYS Driver's License AND is 21 years or older. The DMV recommends that all learners have a minimum of 50 hours of supervised practice driving before they take their road tests, with at least 15 hours at night (after sunset). It is also recommended that at least 10 hours of supervised practice driving be in moderate to heavy traffic. For more information for new driver's visit: New Drivers: How to Get Your Driver License.
Before taking the Road Test all holders of a NYS Learner's Permit must take and pass the Five-Hour Pre-Licensing Course and obtain the MV-278 certificate. Five-Hour Pre-Licensing courses are offered through the Northern New York Driving Academy located at 8 Colorado Avenue.
