Scheduling a Road Test:

Prior to scheduling a road test, it is mandatory that you have a Prelicensing Course Completion 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 Prelicensing Course Completion 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.

The current Saratoga County Road Test Location is in front of 125 Bath Street, Ballston Spa, NY 12020 (road side is marked with signage).
