If you have completed a defensive driving course, you may be able to save on your auto insurance premiums when buying a new or used car either by financing, leasing or through bank car loan.
Regulatory traffic signs instruct drivers what they should, or should not do, in certain circumstances. You will be asked to identify roadway signs on the NY Permit Test.
The DMV NY Written Test and You
Saying “New York” may conjure images of busy city traffic and taxis everywhere, such as we all can picture from countless movies and TV shows. But if you live in the state of New York, you know that it’s much bigger than its most famous city, and chances are you don’t actually take a taxi everywhere you go. You would probably benefit from having a driver’s license.
Whether you’re a first-time driver or a new resident, you will need some guidance on how to navigate this road.
When you are 16 years old (and not before!) you may apply for a driver’s permit in the state of New York. You must pay the applicable fees and have the consent of your legal guardian. You also must take the DMV NY Written Test. Once you pass that test, you will get your NY driver’s permit, but you will also need to know some other specific laws. Depending on where in the state you live, you may only drive at certain times of the day and you may not drive on certain roads. Check with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles to find out what restrictions you will face in your first years of driving.
New NY State Residents
If you are a new resident to the state of New York, but you already have a driver’s license from your previous state of residence, you must still comply with New York state laws. For instance, you may not drive in New York if you are under 16 years of age, and this applies to driving with a learner’s permit as well as a driver’s license. If you are under 18 years old, you cannot drive in New York with an out-of-state license either, and when you are applying for a new license, you must complete a valid driver’s education course. No matter your age, all New York residents must surrender out-of-state driver’s licenses within 30 days of becoming a resident.
