This mandatory five hour pre-licensing course is required by New York State Department of Motor Vehicles for any individual seeking to take a New York State Road Test. The course covers the state required curriculum and is taught by certified instructors .
We are currently offering a virtual 5 hour pre-licensing course via Zoom. You must present a valid NYS permit with picture. Virtual classes are available with both weekend and weekday options for your convenience.
Video must be on at all times and the instructor MUST be able to see you.
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.
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.
