Get Your NY State Driver’s License In 2022


Getting your driver’s license is a crucial element of relocating to a new nation since it allows you to travel about when you need it most (even in big cities). However, in many places around the United States, it is a time-consuming process for people who have relocated from abroad. This guide is only useful if you already have your learner’s permit (you need that first). So, if you want to learn how to accomplish it, you should first read this (and you should read it quickly). Traditionally, in order to obtain a driver’s license (whether you’ve just turned 16 or have recently relocated to the United States), you must complete the following steps:


  • Obtain a New York Learner Permit
  • Attend a Pre-licensing Course (Known as 5-hour Class)
  • Participate in a practice/lesson with an instructor (optional)
  • Take and pass a driving road test

Therefore, they must complete the 5-hour course in NY at this time.


When you successfully complete the course, you will be given a Pre-licensing Course Certificate (MV-278). If you complete a high school or college driver education course, you will receive a Student Certificate of Completion (MV-285), and you do not need a Pre-licensing Course Certificate. You must have one of these certificates to schedule your road test. You must bring the original certificate to your road test to turn in to the license examiner. Your Pre-licensing Course Certificate is valid for one year from the date it is issued. A Student Certificate of Completion is valid for two years. If your Pre-licensing Course Certificate expires, you must complete the course again to receive the certificate required to schedule a road test. Your certificate must be valid on the date that you make your Road Test appointment but can be expired on the date you take your road test.
