Additionally, we need a picture of the front of your NYS PERMIT emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded to your account. NYS PERMIT is required to fill out your certificate.
If your computer or electronic device does not support these requirements, you will be unable to do the course and will be kept on a waiting list until the classroom version is allowed to be conducted.
All classes are by APPOINTMENT ONLY via DISTANCE LEARNING at this time. Payment of $50 is due at time of registration. Once you REGISTER NOW, you will be able to select a class when you SIGN IN to your account. No shows for a reserved class will incur a 20$ cancelation fee.
Although this class is distance learning we want to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. Please remove any outside distractions when class is being taught and limit any disruptions. Completed certificates will be made available for pick up from our main office at 557 State Street on the Monday following the course completion date. Our office is open from 9:30 am to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday. Certificates can be picked up at your convenience but students will need them on the day of their New York State Road Test.
