Online Pre-Licensing Course
Qualify for Your Road Test and Get Your Driver License
First-time drivers who hold a New York learner permit must complete either a 5-hour Pre-Licensing course or a Driver Education course (which includes 24 hours of
coursework and 24 hours of in-car instruction) before they can take their road test to qualify for their driver license. First-time drivers who are age 18 and older
are allowed to take the 5-Hour Pre-Licensing course online.
How It Works
Get everything done in three easy steps!
Step One: Register.
Registration is fast and easy. Create an account by choosing a username and password and inputting your email address. Next, you'll read basic information regarding the course, fill out your contact information, make payment, and create a voiceprint. That's it! You're ready to get started.
Step Two: Complete the Coursework.
Our course is only 5 hours long. It consists of short lessons full of text, videos, and games. A 4-question multiple-choice quiz appears at the end of every lesson. You
must answer at least 3 of the 4 questions correctly to pass the quiz and proceed to the next lesson. You have 3 attempts to pass each lesson quiz. If you fail the third attempt of your lesson quiz,
the New York DMV requires that you restart the course. When you complete the last lesson quiz, you're done! There is no final exam.
Step Three: We Submit Your Completion to the NY DMV.
When you complete the course, we will electronically submit your completion to the New York DMV. The DMV will then record your completion on your driving record. Please note that it can take up to 24 or 48 hours for the
completion to record on your driving record once it is submitted. Once your completion records on your driving record, you can schedule your road test.
