Scheduling a Road Test:
Prior to scheduling a road test, it is mandatory that you have a Pre-licensing Course Certificate (issued within past year) or a Student Certificate of Completion (issued within past two years). In addition to having one of the above documents, it is required that you have had a valid NYS Learner Permit for a minimum of 6 months preceding your scheduled road test.

Upon scheduling your road test please have the following ready:

  • 9-digit ID number located on the front of your NYS Learner Permit
  • The number issued on your Pre-licensing Course Certificate or Student Certificate of Completion form
  • Your 5-digit zip code, or zip code of where you plan to take the road test; for example, Saratoga County Road Test is located in Ballston Spa, so the zip code given would be 12020.
