How do I schedule my road test?

Our agents will contact you by phone when we receive your order to set up your appointment. We have a designated service area for each road test site, so we will select the location  nearest you. We will be in communication with the DMV to set up your test, so there is no need to schedule it on your own. 

What happens after my test?

 If you pass, you will be given a receipt from the DMV examiner, which will serve as your temporary license until your NYS Driver License comes in the mail. It will be mailed to the address you have in file with the DMV and arrive within about 10 business days.

If you fail, don't be discouraged! Your receipt from the examiner will list the actions that caused you to fail, and your instructor can explain the results to you. This will be a guide to improving your skills and you can reschedule and try again. 

Can I use my own vehicle?

Unfortanately, no. Our vehicles have special safety equipment installed to protect our drivers, as well as additional insurance coverage specific to student drivers.
