New York Codes, Rules and Regulations
Title 15 - Department of Motor Vehicles
Part 7 - Prelicensing Classroom Driver Training And Highway Safety Instruction
Section 7.5 - Procedure for licensing of new drivers

Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 51, December 21, 2022

(a) Except for a student who is enrolling in an approved high school or college driver education course, a new driver shall not be enrolled in a prelicensing course unless he presents a valid learner's permit. However, a valid learner's permit shall not be required to be presented prior to enrollment in a prelicensing course or in a research study program if the student is an inmate of a correctional facility. An inmate of a correctional facility will, however, be required to enroll in the prelicensing course or in a research study program upon receipt of a valid learner's permit.

(b) Upon completion of an approved course, the course completion certificate shall be issued to the student by the school that conducted the course.

(c) No road test appointment shall be made for a new driver unless he presents a valid course completion certificate to the Department of Motor Vehicles. This provision may be waived by a motor vehicle district director, a county clerk, or a person designated by such district director or county clerk, except that in no case shall a road test be given until a current course completion certificate is submitted.
