This Step: Take Drivers Education
Take Drivers Education in New York
A) Enroll in a State-Approved Drivers Ed Course
Look online for a drivers ed course. In a state-approved program, you will learn about New York traffic laws, road signs, safe-driving practices and more.
B) Complete Drivers Education
If you passed a high school or college drivers education course, you'll receive a Driver Education Certificate (form MV-285). Valid for 2 years, this certificate will get you out of taking the written permit exam. The other benefit of earning this certificate comes into play when you apply for your drivers license at 17 years old. See Step 5 for more info.
