Choosing a car driving school can be a daunting task.

On-road instruction

Whether you want to take a refresher course to prepare for a road test or are a first-time driver looking for an affordable way to learn the rules of the road, a car driving school may be the right choice.

sign off

Taking the class may require a parent to sign off on the completion of the course. It is also best to take the course with a buddy. You may want to consider a test driver for your first day. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that many students are nervous about driving a vehicle on their own for the first time.


The course also provides a chance to take the state’s official road test. A good school will be able to help you decide whether or not it is the best course for you. The best part is that you will get a certificate of completion that will be good for two years. It is also a good idea to sign up for a buddy program at the earliest opportunity, as most schools have a limited number of slots.


schools offer

These schools offer training on road safety, defensive driving, and other skills you need to pass a state driving test.


The number of lessons you will receive will depend on how many hours you want to spend on your driving education.


Some schools will provide their own vehicles for your lessons, while others allow you to use your own vehicle.


These classes are also known as the 30+6 Drivers Education Program. You can contact your local MVC agency for more information about this program.

In addition to the five-hour Pre-Licensing Class, some students may also need to take a road test. You can schedule your road test appointment by calling your local DMV office or completing the registration process over the phone.

Signed Up

Once you have signed up for lessons, you will need to report to the school on the date you are scheduled for your lessons. Depending on the school’s schedule, you may only be able to take three or four lessons.

After the third lesson, you may want to practice with a friend. You will want to learn how to control your vehicle in turns and parallel parking. You will also want to learn how to use your mirrors correctly.


Some driving schools also offer lessons for teens. These classes include a five-hour Pre-Licensing Course, which teaches New York State driving laws. You may also want to ask about the refund policy for your driving school. Typically, if you fail your driving test, the school will refund your tuition.
