If you need to leave for any reason, please raise your hand and inform the instructor. Please make sure that you return promptly.
Your attendance and full attention for the entire class is required. Cell phone usage during class is prohibited. If you do not meet these requirements, you will be asked to leave the class. No refund will be issued.
We will have one 15 minute break after approximately 2.5 hours of class. The instructor will announce the time.
Certificates will be mailed the following business day. Please be aware that delivery times are out of our control.
If you have met the necessary requirements, at the conclusion of the class, the instructor will message you your certificate number using Zoom. You may use that number to schedule your road test, however keep in mind that you will be required to present the original certificate at the time of the test. When scheduling, be sure to allow time for receipt of the certificate.
At the completion of the course, you will be sent by private message with the certificate number. You can use this certificate number to schedule your road test. NOTE: At the time of the test, you must have the original certificate with you- not a copy or picture.
If your student is flexible in their schedule and can go during the day, normally we can schedule a student within 3-4 weeks. If the student needs after school or weekends, please allow at least 6-8 weeks. Call us for the most accurate schedule, many times we have cancellations.

Yes. In fact you are eligible to take the test several times if needed. Re-tests cannot be taken the same day.
When you received your Class D, DJ, E, M or MJ permit, the fee that you paid included 2 road tests. If you were unsuccessful in passing the road test in 2 attempts, you will need to pay an additional $10 to Department of Motor Vehicles for 2 more attempts before you can schedule a road test.
Also due to the fact that our Road Test fee is based on a flat fee you will be required to pay Bell’s Driving School the fee each time you take the test.
We are not in the business to simply teach students to pass the road test; we're here to teach the students to drive safely and correctly.
All Bell’s Instructors are certified by the NYS DMV.
Whether you are a brand new driver, a driver looking to prepare for the road test, or a licensed driver looking to improve your driving skills, Bell’s has qualified, patient instructors waiting to help you become a safe and skilled driver.
